In the Library, Browsing

We were in the Brooklyn Public Library on Saturday, browsing graphic novels – you had on a big furry hat and nice smile. You tapped me on the shoulder and told me I'm pretty. That was nice. Which book did you end up borrowing?

  4. What a most charming way of portraying books being pulled from shelves without having to draw a ton of books. I l.o.v.e. it!

  11. What is it with women (presumably) that they find it nice when men (presumably) tell them they are pretty? Aren't they supposed to find that creepy? Gosh. I'm more confused than ever before.

  12. How sweet, Sophie!

    I really like how you incorporated the graphic novel element throughout the painting, having the comic panels as part of their clothing!

    Love it!

  34. I must show some thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular issue. As a result of browsing through the net and seeing views which are not productive, I assumed my life was well over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the issues you have fixed as a result of your entire post is a serious case, and ones that could have negatively damaged my entire career if I had not come across your web site. That expertise and kindness in dealing with a lot of stuff was crucial. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a subject like this. I’m able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks so much for your skilled and sensible guide. I will not hesitate to suggest your blog to anybody who needs and wants support about this topic.
