Christmas for the Independent

This is a sketch I did today at Independent Living Resources here in Portland. An organization dedicated to help disabled folks.

These guys. (as well as the lady in the last post), are visually impaired. The man on top mostly just stood and listened to everyone talking, occasionally smiling and joining in. The man in the middle was very talkative, speaking about his experiences in Alaska. While the man on the bottom waited patiently on his ride.

It was ILR's anual Christmas party. I was there with my wife who came to pass out the Christmas boxes at the party.

She has been gathering these boxes for weeks from friends and strangers who wanted to help to make Christmas a little better for these people. In retrospect it was pretty amazing how it all went together.
