Young Sam Jones
This little fellow is Sam Jones, the son of my longstanding old friend Laura Jefferson. I helped raise Sam, walking around Cambridge, Mass. with him and his mother, dining on sushi and miso at the "Roka" Japanese restaurant, and introducing him to comic books. While I had the chance during his short nap, I drew Sam in my sketchbook.
Sam is now 33 years old, married and the adoptive father of a young boy, Nathaniel, who must be growing up fast by now. I haven't seen him or his mom in quite some time, but I hope they are all doing well.
