Guess what I just did?! [Sep. 8th, 2007|09:22 pm]

The best thing ever in the world that's what!




Tonight I took Jil out for dinner and on the way we stopped at the Borders where we met.  I had  a friend of hers drop off a little portfolio in one of the sections.  I picked it up and what do you know.....




I made this for Jil
























































And then I asked her to marry me!  I'm totally engaged!!!!!!!  We're super super super excited.  I'm the happiest guy in the world tonight and I can't wait to marry this gorgeous girl!

I'll ink it all later I promise.  But I want folks to see what I drew my lady...:)...

That's really some of the greatest news EVER!!

Your comic was a really, really lovely thing, making me tear up. It reminded me so much of Barry and Iris and why I love them so.

Congratulations and have a smashing time with Jil. I hope the very, absolute best for both of you together.

I have no problem with us being compared to the wonderful Barry and Iris. Although I consider myself more of a Wally. ;)

Thanks for the congrats!

Speechless

Wow...I am speechless! I rarely can't think of anything to say, but I feel as though it would all seem so trite. Chad, your work is beautiful. And knowing that it represents the love that you share with my sister warms my heart :) My favorite is the frame (is that what it's called???) of you running past the future you share. In particular, the picture of you and Jil cheering on your child's first steps. It brought tears to my eyes. I am so excited for you and happy to soon call you a brother!
XOXO - Joy
