Dallas from Ft. Worth gets married...

Last fall at the State Fair of Texas, I had the good fortune to meet and draw this young man, Dallas Wiens:
He's the recipient of the first full facial transplant in the US and came to the fair with his fiancé, Jamie, a fellow patient he'd met in a support group at the hospital. They were the sweetest couple, and told me they were getting married in the spring. Well, they just did, so I thought I'd share their happy news!
While I was drawing him, Dallas explained that his outlook on life was "you could be bitter, or get better." He chose to get better. :-) I'm so happy for them.
