How to draw your grandmother

During the recent visit of Martin (7) and Alexander (13), I spent some time on the other side of the drawing board! Martin–whose drawings usually spring from his vivid imagination, and tend to feature mythological battle scenes and severed limbs, drew my portrait, while Alexander acted as cameraman.  It was a fascinating experience. Never in my life have I been so carefully scrutinized; no wrinkle or bulge slipped by undocumented!

I’ve trimmed the twelve minutes of footage down to three, and added a soundtrack of Ronn McFarlane playing “Passemeze”. Enjoy!
