Something a Little Different

After letting my Wacom tablet collect dust for the last several months, tonight I finally decided to start drawing agin.

I’ve been following Shane Burcaw of LAMN for a little while and I wanted to make a small tribute piece. Shane is a 20 year old with SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) who has a wonderfully lighthearted outlook on life. He also happens to be an active member in the muscular dystrophy world. He just launched his nonprofit laughingatmynightmare and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Though I don’t know Shane personally, he reminds me of the many wonderful patients and families I had the pleasure of seeing as part of my neuromuscular fellowship last year. 

So here’s a drawing I put together tonight of Shane looking tough in a pretend cape—something I wouldn’t be surprised to see him post on his own tumblr site.
