    Madame X – A Triumph Cloaked in ShameThis

    Artist problem: When someone asks you to draw

    them, and when you actually agree to, they won't stay still. Even worse is when they get up and leave in the middle of it like they never even asked.

    and I need some readers to let me know if what I've got so far is moving in the right direction. Comment or shoot me a message if you're up for reading a "hot off the presses", Craig Newman original.
