    1. Thank you, Sharon – that’s helpful to know. I’ve been working on portfolio pieces – this one wasn’t coming together (I think I still need to work on the light on the window and the drawing in general) but it’s good to know that the story in the illustration is coming through.

    1. Thank you, Claudia. I was commenting to Sharon below that I’m working on some portfolio pieces – people, relationships, meaning of life (not really, but sometimes that creeps in :-)) – and this one was hard, partly because of the light and still figuring out drawing style and approach – but yes, good to know that it’s conveying some of the emotional story.

  1. You capture small cues that add up for me. They stare in opposite directions, she at a passing, maddeningly happy couple (everyone else looks happy when you’re not), he at something or someone in the room. A slight slump to their posture, despair, resignation. Their drinks are different — his has a maraschino cherry garnish. She seems to hold her drink with two hands, a sign of tension or insecurity. His is perhaps drained dry — maybe he’s looking to order another. I hope you don’t mind my reading these things. It’s remarkable how much your drawings convey.

  2. I know you haven’t posted much lately but I’d completely missed this…and it’s beautiful, definitely one of my new favourites. I hope you’re well. You are so noticeable by your absence x
