Illustration Friday: Match

I was having idea block when I went to read my now several days old Sunday Chicago Tribune, and there was a cover story about the twin Chinese girls who were adopted by different American families, and were reunited due to a chance meeting on the internet. Amazingly, their names are both Mia. They seemed to have an immediate connection when they met face to face, and their DNA was a match.

FREAKS! (Bah, look who's talking!)

Sweet illo. I like how you mirrored the 2 Mias. Great story, Angela-toe-picker. ;) I hadn't heard about it...yes, it appears one piece of bizarro web-newz slipped through the cracks on me. I'll make up for it with a story about parasites that make crabs their slaves! It's true...

Cheers for the delightful illo/story combo.

Great illustration! It's very cute! And what an inspiring story. After my brother disappeared, I always would imagine that I would randomly cross paths with him on the internet or out on the City streets.

Obviously I need to spend more time blogging, because I didn't come see yours for too dang long.

Anyhoo, "Match" is just perfect!

And when you have the time, you should stop by "I'm Sorry I Haven't Posted" again (I was too bold about linking to you I know) -- have built it out a tiny bit more. That Trevor.
