My first "commission"

A couple of weeks ago I was given my first sort of commission.

I say "sort of" because I didn't actually get paid for it.

I did it as a favour for a friend who is preparing a surprise for her boyfriend.

She is compiling a book with poems he has written and wanted to include a portrait of him.

Apparently she had seen and liked my latest drawings on FB, so she asked me.

I haven't met him yet, but he looks like a very kind person.
