Lucy Apfvarzian’s husband Juba, went missing, whilst he was out performing as a magician on the streets of Mogadishu.

    1. Hi Bill, thank you, yes Lucy is very determined, and although she’s been placed in this position it was very important for her to attempt to save herself when she realised no one was listening. I’m glad that translates. Once again, thanks for reading, I appreciate it.

  1. you did a great job of expressing the sadness, frustration, worry, fright, and anguish in that drawing! The facial expressions match the story VERY WELL. Love it!

    1. That’s for sure! There’s a lot of these bureau’s around, and they’re basically placebos. Looks like Lucy will have to try and work her own magic…..

  2. The Bureau of Complaints – brilliantly, casually, mundanely callous. Nice ornate door, too. This is great, Cheryl. And the drawing’s really powerful.

  3. Hi,
    I saw that you liked a post on my blog!
    Maybe we can follow each other?
    And you have my compliments for your blog, you can be very proud of your drawings x

    1. Hi Eveline, it’s good to meet you, yes that sounds great, I’ve followed you, couldn’t help noticing those unusual shoes on your blog, they look futuristic but rustic. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it. Cheryl

    1. Hi Dianne, thank you! 🙂 Your artwork is fantastic, btw, I visited your website and love the colours you use, glad you like my drawings too (I wish I could use colour as effectively as you) Good to meet you. Cheryl

  4. I’m still trying to catch up but I have enjoyed what I’ve read so far. You capture the emotions of your characters very well and the art compliments very nicely.

  5. Hey there! It’s my first time stopping by, and I have to say the scope of this is truly impressive. I’ll be reading on with great interest. Also, kudos for the intriguing prose. It’s visually stimulating and poetic; there’s a lot going under the surface here.

    1. Hi Laura, thank you, I appreciate it. I love Turtle Dude BTW, it’s almost like a print, and the textures and colours you used are quite beautiful. Good to meet you.

Keep it alive...
