If I lavished special attention on Andrew’s guest art, it was because I’d never seen anyone put so much effort into something for me. Also, because I had a big old crush on him. Andrew was very proud when I posted his first set of Narbonic drawings, even emailing his big Italian family back in Ohio about it. (Andrew and I both grew up in Ohio. As we were soon to learn, as we visited each other in Ohio over the Christmas holidays, our parents live less than an hour apart.)
Helen and Mell have, of course, been shopping at Ellmann’s.
