For this one, he did a series of 5 commemorating the anniversary of Amanda's birthday, in 2009. I've always been rather amazed at how he captured that je ne sais quoi in her eyes that is so "her".
* If you are interested in becoming an art donor for Elwood, please contact us at [email protected].
Elwood found out that he has to receive art supplies so many times per year (approximately every 3 months) or he's removed from the Art Program at the prison. (sigh!) So please let us know if anyone is interested now and again in donating art supplies by ordering through the Dick Blic catalog and having the order mailed directly to the prison from the supplier (it gets opened and audited for acceptance before being given to Elwood). Donors have been granted permission to order through Dick Blic(sp?) catalogs, but only certain items are permitted to be sent, otherwise it's considered contraband. So please check first, but let me know if it's a surprise. If you are interested in remaining anonymous as a donor, I'm sure there are ways Dick Blic can work with you to keep your name off the packaging.
He would appreciate it I know. And as you can see he really does have a raw talent!
Elwood airbrushed this T-shirt for an art donor who loves "Hello Kitty."
Here is Elwood's latest drawing, right around Christmas last year (hence the theme):
MAY: Elwood has been working with the air brushing medium and sent me this in May 2011.
