Day 267 – The Gift

Garbanzo’s gift to me was this picture.  Anyone recognize it?

How about this hint?

Garbanzo had a local artist do this rendition of this picture because it was the first picture he took of me where I went “wow!” He loved it himself too, but wanted us to have a picture of it for our bedroom.

A few months ago, as part of his comic book blog, he interviewed Joelle Jones – a woman whose artistic depiction of women is something he had admired.  So, he asked her to do this picture for me.  It’s amazing. I love the hair – the way the sheet turns into the ink splotches.  I really LOVE how she translated it.  And, I love the picture. 

The girls – they got me a set of pint glasses from Powell’s Books.  Don’t my kids know me.
