Artist's Note

Artist's statement about this piece: I did not do this drawing on the spot as I wanted to be careful that everyone would be happy with my rendition. Amy Jones on the far right is a friend, but she is also my boss at Writer’s Digest. So, about half of this was done live, and I finished it later back in my hotel room using photos I took as reference. Each night, I would be up until around 2, 3 in the morning. And I also had to prepare for my own workshop I gave.
