hi sara it's erika i re-bumped into you years ago in MPLS at a wedding i was working. brendy and i were very close and he introduced me to you back in th'day. i just found this picture along with its preceeding photograph. i can't begin to tell you how glad i am that this drawing exists. i saw it a few times years ago and sometimes would see it at matt's house. i've wanted to see it so many times. looking at it is like being able to say goodbye. he looks happy. i'll never forget that face. eyes, lips. i still can't believe how much i miss him how unfair it is that he's gone except that we all have a most beautiful angel. i remember a night of 10,000 bouncy balls, your bday? moments of pure bliss. thanks for your talent. life is so strange. your other art looks great too. email me if you like i'm still in MPLS....

It brought tears to my eyes. Witty, It is the most stunning thing I have ever seen you do.

the feathers are such a wonderful touch. why do we get so egotistical about those who die? the only one who needs this futile display of sorrow is ourselves and the relatives, since the dead really really couldn't care less.

but lamentation is such a good weapon in the hands of artists. heart-sinking Sarah! thumbs up my friend.

you most definitely pulled it of. it has more of a warmer intimate feeling, without loosing your original touch. and i love that there is always so must meaning hiding behind your work. condolences
