Hands with Sketched Face

Mike* has very expressive hands. I have posted sketches of them before (Resting Hands Revisited, Playing Hands, About to Hold Hands, Hands Full).

Years ago another resident of his group home hurt him. It is hard to blame the other guy. Mike can be very annoying. He used to steal food from the plates of other people.  His injury wasn’t serious, although it looks that way.

Here is, perhaps, an overly dramatic picture of Mike after his injury. He is engaged in one of his stereotypical behaviors.

Below is a combination sketch and watercolor of Mike’s hands from a couple of different pictures.
