You're amazingly talented! This looks terrific, I love the character design you gave Nancy Drew, it's like nothing I've seen before. I also really like her expression: unafraid and inquisitive with a subtle smile (as I see it at least). The background (with all the details: the mirror, the old man, the skulls, the lamp post, the books/(luggage?)) is fantastic and rich and detailed. I am in love with this picture.

I really loved Nancy Drew growing up. Finding my mom's old copies was such a treat. I love how it's all in this image. She's so brave, curious, and determined. Thankyou!

OH, I remember Nancy Drew! What an excellent interpretation. I love how full of life and movement this piece is; it really reflects Nancy's adventures. You gave her a very classic Nancy outfit, I love that. The way that the leaves in her coat seem to reflect the birds outside is great. I also like the general autumnal feeling of this piece.

"Btw, are you going to buy that piece?"

I don't know yet.

I just sent out the money to 360 Digital Printers to have a thousand copies of the graphic novel, THE POSSESSED IN 1905 printed. (We had talked about a possible back cover for this in December 2010. You were busy and my finances had deteriorated by the time that you were free.) Angeline Mauri and I have worked on this graphic novel for years. I had to borrow because I was short 2K.

I SHOULDN'T buy this piece but I won't know until I see it.

Still not available as of Saturday 2/9/2013. The Sales Lady assured me that it was on it's way. (For those in L.A., Gallery 1988 is next to Golden Apple on Melrose.)

Thank you for keeping us informed about that - there's actually no way to me to control US customs procedures and their time of delivering parcels shipped from Europe. Btw, are you going to buy that piece? :)

Nati,
I was expecting to see this piece on the gallery-1988 web site in the 'YOUNG ADULT' catagory. Nothing.

nineteeneightyeight.com/collections/gallery-1988-hello-giggles-present-young-adult?page=4

This is within reasonable driving distance for me (the parking on Melrose is another metter) and I would love to see it.

Was there a change of plans?

Lovely colours! The outlining that you do around some of the elements really makes them pop :) I haven't actually read any Nancy Drew I'm afraid, so I'm just here for the pretty.

Oh, it kind of makes me happy seeing you draw Nancy Drew. I did get stuck reading a few of those books and they were definitely not awful, I really like your take on her.
