Sketching this portrait of my mother’s dad, Nick D’agostino. He was a master woodworker, wore a lot of brown, hopped trains to California, drank with John Wayne, and once told Ronald Reagan to shut up. He was a huge influence in my life, and I miss him.
Sketching a portrait of my great grandfather Nickolas D’agostino. He moved to NYC from Sorrento Italy, and made his living as a tailor. He was the personal tailor for Teddy Roosevelt, and made the suit he was married in, and the suit he was buried in.
