These two beautiful people are my great grandparents, John and Helen. In this piece I used a mix of India ink, charcoal, and pencil. It is not incredibly detailed because the photo I had to work off of wasn't. It was taken somewhere around 1920. My great grandparents had just got hitched and were off the boat they came in through Ellis Island.

There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or

its cool :)

its this vintage, or antique touch, its beautiful :D
