Parnelli and I were at an automotive banquet, and he posed for a photo. Later, he autographed it. He told me that it is the only portrait of himself that he can stand to look at!

***Note from Kerry:
Wow Rico, your drawings are brilliant.

Too much like him!

Too much like him!

This is a portrait that I drew of a pal. I surprised him with it by giving it to him as a birthday present.

He said that it looks just like him, I guess that's why he hasn't ever hung it!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rico, it's a shame that your pal doesn't show off your brilliant artwork. He might be too modest. I think it's a terrific portrait drawing, great work!
