During holiday break, my family and I went to Manhattan on a rainy day. A man walking his dog – which happened to be wearing the same shade of red as its owner – opened up his umbrella as he passed us, and I noticed that the umbrella was probably meant for a child because it was very small. I thought this was peculiar, so I decided to draw them. I used graphite pencil to sketch it, went over it in artist’s ink pens, and colored it in with alcohol markers.man-with-the-small-umbrella-2017
