Something I'd really like to do....

Suddenly I got this epiphany. There I was, looking for some more faces to do, and I stumbled upon a blog of a guy who tries to visit 'his brothers' in Africa every year. And what he has done is document the people in his travels by means of photos. What I really love about his photos is that you don't see large eyed starving children, a la Somalia (which by the way is wrong on so many levels for preventing aid from reaching that country), but happy smiling people, which he adds are very poor, but happy. Additionally, I saw that these people from the very black to the lighter skin tones are beautiful in their own way. At one point he added that there is a part in Australia where the people there are considered 'the blackest in the whole world!' 

What I would like to do is illustrate people with very dark skin and put the finished product on my blog. The only thing is I don't have the time as I got another job, actually, one of my old jobs requested my presence and there I am. Now, I am still looking for interracial couples and the like to illustrate, but I want a more exotic feel the the art, or I will create it.

Coming to think of it, I would like to get others races as well, but I want a challenge. Something that would make me get a headache to finish. Meanwhile, I would scout around for more couples.
