I drew this with pencil on a piece of paper in my sketchbook. I referred to a photo of my mother as a 10 years old, and somehow it ended up looking more like me.

Many people mistake this to be my self-portrait. It’s funny that it turned out this way. Many people tell me I resemble my mother, and I don’t see that so much. Even as I was looking at my mother’s past photo, I wasn’t thinking that she looked like me, but in the end I see a portrait which looks like me. As I grow older, I realize more and more how much we are alike.

I drew this during my summer after grade 11. At the time my mother was in Japan and I was missing her.

    Exquisite. I can feel the tenderness in every pencil mark. Its as if you caressed the image from the paper.

    this is lovely I bet your mum was very proud

  • Thank you. My mother was excited the first time she saw it, then she said “but you didn’t have to draw the messy bits of my hair” :P. She also said something about the face being a bit strange, but then looked at the photo I was drawing from and realized she was already making that face from the start :P
