Barcleona was full of it

Here's a picture I made for the birthday of a one Jay Haffie-Emslie (turning sixteen, he naturally needed sixteen birthday presents). This was inspired by a photograph taken outside the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. I really wanted to go, but the wait was long, and my fellow travelers, including Jay, were generally unimpressed with what lay inside. Yet despite the collective malaise, I'm pretty pleased with how this worked out. He and Ben look more like a family in exile, in the midst of a long winters trek, then they do Canadian tourists is Spain. I've taken a bit of a break since finishing this (the detail was pretty exhausting), but I think I'm ready now to get back to it.
