my first grader

Sharpie marker on cardstock.

This is my first-grader, lying on the area rug and contemplating the day ahead. The kid who, upon waking, comes in and asks to check my pulse and then does so, with two fingers over the pacemaker scar, announcing: "I can feel your heart beating. I can feel the pacemaker working, too."

I only realize now, after I've posted the sketch, that I didn't finish the detail on the back of his jeans pocket.
