We’re getting ready to move my office upstairs, and this resulted in a box of artwork lying open on the floor. Gleek took one look at the picture on top and exclaimed:
“I want a girl like that! With a shooter, and with… hair.”
The thing that makes this female look so much different than the others I draw… LIPS. That’s right, those elusive pucker-makers, right here on a picture *I* drew.
Granted, the hair looks nice too. And the shooter. And you can play with “shooter” anagrammatically for other things that look nice.
I scanned it and printed it out for Gleek to color. She was DELIGHTED, and ran around the house showing off her picture to everyone, including the baby AND me. Then she colored the hair pink, took it with her to the sitter’s, and lost it.
This is why she got a printout rather than the original.
