I know I've mentioned the amazing blog galadarling.com a few times on here. Gala is a super positive "archetect of life"--someone who takes big chances and makes the most of the results. I've been reading her site for a while, and it's one of my favorites, filled with bright, cheerful accounts of her outfits (high and low fashion--a recent purse purchase was from Toys R Us!), and peppered with a swiftly-sweet writing style.
I wrote to Gala about doing a portrait and she responded excitedly. I've been working on this like mad for the past few days, and am happy with how it came out. Usually I don't use the pencil so much. Something new.
