Blow-up Girl

No, it’s not an illustration of a lonely guy’s cheap date!  This piece came about after too many hours in my former attic office/studio at the house. It is unfinished in that various “darts” raining down were intended (assignments, clients, dial-up, dirty dishes, laundry, a husband who preferred I not work at all hours, etc.), threatening to send this girl spiraling into oblivion.  It basically expressed a nagging need to find real work space — one with high-speed internet no less — in town. Gosh, it’s been almost seven years ago that I moved (to 104 N. Railroad Avenue, Suite C, Ashland VA 23005).
