I came across a wonderful little drawing entilted “Different Hands” done by 8 year old Alexis Chavez. She’s the daughter of Martin Chavez, our senior account guy at BTS Communications. I asked Martin if I could use the sketch as the basis of a piece of artwork I wanted to do. He got approval from Alexis and I went to work. Mind you her sketch was perfect as is. I wanted to elaborate because it spoke to me in a way I couldn’t articulate other than to create this art. Once the art was done I realized it held great symbolism for me. Things like the past giving birth to the future and is progress a good thing or are we becoming less human as we move forward…etc.
So I’m posting it and I am at the same time thanking Martin and Alexis for letting me expound on her wonderful piece.
