Kenny Goins Jr. 2014

Kenny Goins Jr. Drawing

Kenny Jr. born in Baltimore, played his high school ball at Gilman. Playing both sides of the ball, in 2011 Kenny was named All Metro Defensive Player of the Year by the Baltimore Sun.As a Maryland Terrapin, he played in all 13 games as a red shirt freshman in 2013. This season he is playing Fullback, although he has also played on Special Teams. 
I am friends with Kenny the Port of Baltimore, and spoke to him the day he was leaving to see Kenny Jr. play at South Florida. In that game, Kenny Jr. blocked a punt in the fourth quarter that was recovered in the end zone for a Terps touchdown. That touchdown made the difference in the 24-17 win.

Jackie Surfing 2014

Jackie Drawing
Living at the beach, I surfed the entire summer, every year from when I was ten through my twenties. Now after many years, and shoulder surgery, I have gotten back into it. My youngest son Jacob does it with me, and much like in my youth, I cant wait to get back to the ocean and feel that "Stoke". 
This fall at one of the beaches that we go to, I met and photographed Jackie. I spoke to her about the photograph, and then did this drawing from it.
