Hi Grandma Baby in Pencil

Graphite Pencil on 3-inch x 4-inch ivory paper. 1980’s

When K. L. Todd’s mother became a first-time Grandmother, she included this tiny sketch in a letter she sent her. She modified a picture from a magazine with an older baby in a cute waving pose to look like how she thought the grandchild might appear once she was this age (incorporating a few family baby pictures). Turns out her niece had only a small amount of very straight hair by the time she was this age, but the little drawing was still cherished by K. L. Todd’s mother.
