not teaching comics: my wife is gorgeous

I thought I’d share some recent artwork featuring my gorgeous wife Ellen. Awhile back, I posted this painting

by Chuck Marshall that featured Ellen, Elliot and I. Chuck’s an artist that Ellen works with pretty regularly at her job managing Gallery 42 Fine Arts here in Mason. Well, a few weeks ago, Chuck decided to paint a picture of Ellen by herself, and I thought I’d share the result with you because… well, because of the title of this post. My wife is gorgeous.

Coincidentally, just last week I commissioned my own piece of Ellen artwork!

Sarah Glidden the cartoonist, most recently of the DC/Vertigo book How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, has been offering to do watercolor portraits over in here Etsy shop. Ellen and I were big fans of Sarah’s last book, so I had to take the opportunity to get a painting. I was planning on waiting until our anniversary this summer to show Ellen, but of course I couldn’t wait.

Anyhow, here’s the takeaway on today’s post: I married up.
