It's NO JOKE...He's 20 Today!!!

Well, Happy 20th Birthday Edward! My son, the 'artiste', created this piece with the advances of photoshop, and was using it as his Facebook profile picture for a while (YIKES!). As interesting as this rendition of 'The Joker' is, Edward is, in my humble opinion, even a more interesting character. We have watched him really grow-up in many ways, even these past couple of months. As a child of the computer age, he 'gets it', he studies it, he wants more and more of it. Like the many layers applied to this piece of Edward as 'The Joker', the many layers of the real Edward are being applied to his Spirit and soul daily. He's still a work-in-progress, no joke!
Many more Happy Birthdays Edward!!!

a tablet is something I've never worked on.
I'm afraid if I do, I might never be able to leave the computer!
