Personal -- My Father in Pencil

This was another project for my Commercial Art degree in college.

My father was diagnosed with cancer in 1992. He went through surgery, chemotherapy, a colostomy and more to try and fight it. In the span of it all, he decided to concentrate on life and entered Florida Metropolitan University (back then it was called Tampa College), to pursue a degree in Law. He was one semester away from graduation when he died in Memorial Hospital, due to complications from a simple surgery.

On the day of his interment, I promised I would go to college myself and complete getting my degree in his honor.

As part of one project, I drew this from a picture that my father had taken while he was still active in the US Air Force. This is so that I have him in my sight and in my memory...

This is for you, Dad...
