Winter here in these Northeastern United States was long, bleak and uncharacteristically snowy. The Wacksmans spent many an hour anticipating Spring's liberating arrival as our energetic toddler enthusiastically tore our home apart. One of the bright spots in an otherwise long stretch of freezing cold grey was the youngster's discovery of and subsequent obsession with LA-based pop group OK Go!
whose clever videos and danceable melodies seemed to blow his wig back from first listen. Watching him attempt to mimic their dance steps while singing words he could neither define nor pronounce was an endless source of hilarity for the missus and me. I drew this portrait of them one afternoon as an exercise and later used it as a promotional piece.
