Happy Heart Day. For some, February 14th is a mess of capitalism and cheesy stuff animals, but my boyfriend and I see it as a friendly reminder that we should pick up a nice bottle of wine and forget about work for a while. This morning I painted him the little valentine above. I should explain- my nickname in the relationship is "squirrel". Although it sounds very cute, I actually got the title because I'm a total SPAZ when crossing the street (like a squirrel: right. left. hop to the right some more. freeze. RUN). He became known as "Woodchuck" (depending who you ask that came about for different reasons, although I think neither one of us knows 100% anymore). The apartment is littered with woodchuck drawings, but I don't have a scan. However, I realize that I basically draw him as a big round fuzzball that looks kind of like Totoro, so that will do for the sake of this entry.
