this is adorable, and yet not without a slightly sinister edge, which is very subtle.  Maybe it's the red tie; to me it suggests a doctor rather than a parent..   now I'll google "Apheleia" and see if that offers any clues :)   I really like the way you have drawn the girl's hair in this one, and the angle and viewpoint is so well chosen.

:heart: did the clue change your perspective at all? and Merci Monsieur xX :heart: its interesting to wonder whether if this is the first piece of work of mine you'd seen whether the red tie would hold the same sway as it does after having viewed it in the context of past experiences..

haha, that's a good question... you do tend to use touches of red to direct our eyes to seemingly insignificant parts of the drawing...  I always suspect that some sub-text is going on, usually too subtle for lumpens like me to understand.  So, I looked up "Apheleia" and I'm none the wiser, really;  I mean, it sounds innocuous enough, but in Lily-world, are things ever what they seem?

"Apheleia" was the spirit / personification of ease, simplicity and primitivity in the good sense in Greek Mythology. Thats the biggest clue, seeing how there is always a subtext, hidden meaning, drawing significance into things that I do. The irony is that within what I do there is always something more, in this case, the something more is the pointing out that sometimes there is not something more haha. Self referential if you look at it in the context of what has come before. :heart: confused, would we!

well, I suppose you could say that on the one hand there's sub-text, and on the other hand there's LilyUnsub-text.. :stupidme: haha :)  anyway suffice it to say, I know you're up to something... :o and whatever it is, you won't get away with it! :confused: once I work out what it is :slow::heart:
