Commemorative Artwork (Drawing) of US Army k-9 Police Handler and his Military Working Dog

It has been a while since my last post and some of you might have been wondering what was on my easel? I started this commission last April and although I was given over a year to complete it, I felt it's completion was long overdue.
The drawing features Military K-9 Police handler Sgt Chris Lalonde and his dog U.S. Army Sgt. Maj. Fasco. The pair participated in a historic tandem jump from a CH-47 Chinook helicopter at an altitude of 12,500 feet, Sept. 18, 2009. The jump took place at the Gammon Parade Field on Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. during Military Police Warfighter Week.
