Kate Ellick

Kate Ellick was 61 years old when she was arrested for being homeless in Australia. She never had a family, or anyone to help her. She was sentenced to three months in prison. This is her mugshot.

I did this drawing over the last two days in my studio during Open Studio hours. Hope you like it. Thanks for looking.

Brilliant sketch and what a sad story about Kate, still I guess at least being arrested meant she had somewhere to stay for a few days.
