Another sketch by my cousin, Celso Pacheco. This is my Grandfather; Mom’s Dad, and the only likeness of him that our family has. Any photos we had were ruined in a mishap. Mom asked Celso to sketch a likeness of my Grandfather based on both their recollections. My Grandfather, Victor Hernandez, was a farmer in Colorado, and yes, that machete was a tool of the trade. Mom found machetes somewhat scary, and so she tried marking out the tip of the sketched machete to make it seem less threatening. Makes perfect sense.
