I Heart Faces - Texture

This week's contest at iheartfaces was texture. There are so many good entries. Stop by their website and check them out.




Many of you know the face in this picture as Grant. Grant is 3 and he lives across the street from me. About 6 months ago, he was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. As of now, there is no treatment/cure for this disease and is ultimately fatal. He is walking around right now as a normal little boy, but over time his muscles will start to deteriorate. Grant's parents are making it their life's mission to raise awareness about this horrible disease. They have started a foundation called Save Our Boy (www.saveourboy.org). Please help them raise awareness by reading their story. Thank you.

A very interesting use of color and texture to make the face stand out. Nice one!
