Portrait of H.o.p. and Aku, 2005
View On White
The devotion of a child to a toy is a funny thing. H.o.p. loved that Aku and did many drawings of it. When it broke (and he was careful with it, but the toy was fairly flimsy) we carefully glued it together again. When it again later broke we tried glue again. Eventually I remember his using Play Doh modeling clay to try to hold it together, and when that eventually failed he tried twine and glue.
