Zachary


 

This is the portrait of Zach, the nine year old son of a friend in residency. I did it festering in the heat of our living room in Beirut, and while people were out on the streets shouting "enough" to terrorism and crime. God knows if inside, I wasn't shouting with them. But all I wanted, all I needed, was to draw a kid's smile on a piece of paper, and on his young face when he got his long awaited portrait. So I did. And it felt like a million dollars.
