illustration friday - wrinkles [my dad]

This week my topic is my dad. He is the most respectful person in my life. The reason is he has a tragic life when he was a kid. He lost his mom because she was sick and passed away. After that, my grandma [his stepmom] did not treat him that well and my grandpa was always away from home, so he had a hard time to grow up in a non-functional family. Even though my dad and I did not get along that well, we know we love each other a lot in a traditional Chinese way. I always remember his 'wrinkles' on his face which state his experience and his history. He does not talk much to people but he really cares his family and friends. Actually, he will be visiting me in May. So we have a lot things to catch up. Thanks. Have a blessed week.
