IF: POEM.

In middle school, I got hooked on Dorothy Parker. Something about her dark humor really caught my eye. My English teacher said that she knew I'd like Parker. I'm not really sure what that implied. Anyway, "I might as well live" comes from Parker's poem "Resume".

She's holding an empty bottle of poison because I can't draw a proper noose, apparently.

  6. Gosh I think I already commented with your last IF entry about how I really enjoy the way you draw figures. There is definitely something vintage-y about them that I love. This is another great one!
