It’s as if my friend Roque and I entered a time machine in 1985 and said “Okay, let’s meet up 25 years later and we’ll see where we’re at!” and it worked. I am glad to see my friend again. Here are some sketches. The first one is what I imagine Roque to look like now. When I finished that little sketch, I thought he looked a lot like Denzel Washington from the film “The Book of Eli”.
The next sketch page is a drawing of Roque from High School. Or, more accurately, a memory I have that I tried to reproduce of the way Roque exists in my head until I actually see him again. Until then, this is the image that, in my mind, represents that talented young man from long ago.
