Bobby Pastorella Sr. is my father. He is an artist, typically drawing photo-like pencil drawings using only a #2 pencil. He does some work in pastel also. I was going to use one of his pictures he drew me for my background, but I am unsatisfied with how the colors came out after scanning the drawing. Note to self, scanning is not always the best route to go with pencil drawings. I plan on scanning more of his art and providing some samples here, though eventually he’s going to have his own website. Here are a few more pictures. My father passed away February 25th, 2013 from complications of kidney and liver disease.
