Penelope

Next Monday starts
National Library Week, so I felt like paying homage to my place of employment, and drawing some library themed love. I've worked at the library for 4 years now, and being as I'll be uprootin myself en route to another endeavor, I think I will miss it, as much as you can miss a job. If nothing else, the library exposed me to a lot of different artists and random information, just by flipping through the books as I put them away. Though I got sick of putting away DVDs, because you can't flip through those.

Nice treatment of the books - drawings hundreds of books seems intimidating. Cute character and outfit too.

Came to your blog via Jackey Whys, which featured your alternate book covers. I noticed under that, you said you could order prints. Is that also true of this one, Penelope? I think it's lovely--and reminds me of Audrey Hepburn's Jo in Funny Face. I'm also a librarian! Please contact me.

I really like this piece. It reminds me of one of my favorite artists Tadahiro Uesugi.
