Stella, Baby

I'm still busy with actual paid work so I've asked my family to pick up some of the slack, both with the house and this blog. Today's picture is courtesy of Esme, who was inspired to draw it after reading one of the Stella books by Montrealer Marie-Louise Gay.

p.s. My review of Lullabies for Little Criminals is now available online.

Liked Esme's picture, and your review of Lullabies for Little Criminals--which is the best book title I've read in years. I will have to catch up with it soon myself.

She's quite the sophisticated little artist, right down to the dress's print. Good to have that kind of help around!

She looks exactly like Stella! Well done, Esme! And to you mom, your review is awesome, I just added that book to my goodreads.com "to read" shelf :)

Thanks, again, everyone. The artist is currently feeling a little "artistic" in temperament, but when she has calmed down, I will tell her how much you like her work.

I just picked up that book! I had to hit Chapters while I was in Canada. I'll be checking that review out.
