I was Belle from Beauty and the Beast this year at work! None of the patrons recognized me (one patron thought I was a midwife…I mean, really? Really.) Nevertheless, I enjoyed twirling around the library, smiling all big and foolish as I carried around chin-high stacks of books in my arms. Belle would do the same, right? I’d like to think so.
Perfect costume is perfect.
Reading around the world. How wonderful.

A drawing I have in this show.
Also, I have a new print for sale.
Happy December 10th, everybody!
