November 1983

The trick to this job was to get the approval of the portraits and the painting past the mother of Brooke Shields.  If you will recall, Brooke's mother was, shall we say, in control of her daughters career at that point of her life and she had a reputation of being very particular.  While the studio demonstrated great concern over this Drew was the one who had to perform.  As usual he did an exquisite job and it was no surprise that it was easily approved by Brooke and her mom with no problem.  It should be noted that the stars usually have approval of their likeness' in their contracts and Drew has never had a problem getting that approval.  I wonder why?
