I'd like to introduce you all to Songbird, my wife, the lovely Mrs. Inker.

This isn't far off from what she looks like in real life — barring a few rather notable and obvious differences. Those of you who've met her would likely recognize her here, and if you haven't met her, well, now you know pretty well what she looks like. (And yes, she likes horses and ponies and pegasuses and unicorns and centaurs, so somehow she actually approves of the things I draw.)

The other day she was in the kitchen wearing a pretty lavender sweater, looking a lot like this, and I was like OMG she's gorgeous and I have to draw her. And where better to be wearing a nice soft warm sweater than outside in the snow? She doesn't own that purple hat or scarf, but maybe I can fix that for her this Christmas :)

She rocks my socks. Seriously, I get to sleep next to this girl every night and wake up next to her every morning. We've been married ten years now, and she's just as amazing as the day we met. Moreso, really, since she's added not just "wife" but "mother" to her résumé. I don't know how it is that I'm so lucky, but damned if I'm not going to celebrate her awesomeness by doing my best to draw her the way I see her in my mind's eye, gorgeous and sexy and sweet and smart and kind and talented and 1000% more of all the best things a woman can be.

Coincidentally, today is exactly 10 years and 1 month since we were married, so happy one-month-after-our-big-anniversary, love! <3

As usual, this is all vector art, all drawn with a mouse, all done in CorelDRAW. It's almost starting to look like I know what I'm doing :)
