Daily Sketch Reprise: Back to Back, and What Mimi Thought of It

If they’re going to sleep all over my desk, they are going to be sketched. I like the shapes they make in their communal naps, and here I could see that one strong line from Mimi to Giuseppe and back. Out came the brush pen to see if I could follow it.


Mimi says it’s time for dinner. This is what she thinks of my sketch of her and her son.

Do I have your attention?

Apparently, it’s dinnertime and I need to pay attention to that fact. When I took a photo of her instead of immediately getting up and heading for the kitchen, Mimi took further action.
