Hobbs is incredibly talented in so many ways that the only way I know how to describe it Hollywood terms would be "quadruple threat times two plus a few more." He's also a teenager, so I think it's safe to assume that by the time he's my age, we'll lose count. You can learn about this designer, dancer, musician, photographer, painter, illustrator, activist, student, and I'm sure very very good son in the MEET THE MAKER section below.


This is one of a series of self-portraits. They were photographed with the assistance of his mother, which I think supports my theory that he's a very very good son.
