Survivor Portrait for Jack Pavlekovich
J.P. Survivor Portrait in Progress Video3
October 16, 2014
This is a work in progress video of Drawing Jamie for Jack. With music by The Chantilly Lace Band and Jack Pavlekovich on vocals doing a cover of The Summer Time Blues.
Following a face to face interview with Jack Pavlekovich to learn more about his story, I am using the Ostrich Cot at the studio to draw this Survivor Portrait for him. The first recipient of the Arachnoiditis Survivor Portrait Project to empower survivors through participation in the arts; he is husband, father, musician, former police officer, and a survivor of the 2012 Fungal Meningitis Outbreak recently diagnosed with spinal arachnoiditis. Anonymous support for the project has permitted me to turn his Survivor Portrait into a family portrait.
