Our Annual Christmas Letter: N

At our recent annual retreat the Board of Directors, executive leadership, management, staff, interns, volunteers, and special guests selected N as the letter that best epitomizes our mission-driven 2019 portfoliolongo.com efforts. From our family to yours, Happy Holidays and, if applicable, Merry Christmas.

Jim Foote Senior, AA 1284, DFW to FAT

On our flight from Dallas/Fort Worth to Fresno I asked Mr. Foote, who will turn 90 soon, if I could draw him, and he said, sure. While I sketched, he told me stories. I learned a lot! I found out he’s an author, an illustrator, and a retired educator. Check him out on Amazon  by clicking here. What a blessing, especially after a such a blessed reunion with my sister and brother and their loved ones!

Cokie

I can still hear her voice. Her full name was: Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne “Cokie” Roberts. 1943-2019

[My way of spending a little extra time with her. One hour and twenty-five minutes and 3,138 brush strokes, to be exact, in Sketch Club on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil, plus a tweak in iColorama.]

This is a re-do. I already posted a digital iPad drawing done in Paper 53 of Gabriel García Márquez, click here to see that post if you’re so inclined, but I felt like doing another in Sketch Club for the hell of it. Click therethere to see the translation, if need be.
