Tonight I made gnocchi for the first time in our family. My wife and I love it, but my youngest...we'll that's a different story all together. You see, it looked different, it wasn't breaded or deep fried, there was no cheese over the top of it, nor was it covered in chocolate, which meant that it wasn't good. After we coaxed, begged, pleaded, threatened and force fed, he finally realized that he did not only think it was edible, but likable.
I did this little sketch after dinner while he was playing in the yard.

It's been a long time since I lasted visited, I'm ashamed to say! You work, as always, is brilliant. This one is great. Have you ever illustrated children's books?
