Meet Elsie, my naked, wooden studio mannequin, so lonely as of late, she gave in and hugged an unsuspecting bottle of slow-drying Gamblin. I went ahead and sketched her in the act, since the page I'm currently working on calls for a young woman and her grandma in a sorrowful embrace.
Then, I'm locking Elsie away in my file cabinet. Ever since I've been getting back into shape, she ain't been looking at me right.
