Dearest George

Dearest George

Alicia Souza
Select Preferred Format

Yes. I admit. I’m in love. (Ugh!)

But let’s be realistic- I’m married and when that happens, realism sets in pretty quick. Those recurring used socks on the floor make sure of it! But I’m in love with being in love. The comfort of their human-ness, the warmth of their voice and even the sweatiness of hand-holding of someone you adore. Dearest George hopefully captures that. The everyday kinda love an infinite number of kisses, huge doses of longing when they’re away, just a wee bit of creepy stalking, lots of chips eating (one needs special nutrition) & the occasional banter about who made the first move. He DID.

(I need this in print so this debate ends once & for all.)

PS: He’ll tell you some story about a bus and all. DO NOT listen. Close your ears and hum. Trust me.

Alicia Souza

Alicia Souza has been referred to as a 'happiness illustrator' for the snippets of happy incidents, funny conversations or daily life musings she draws. She's added it to her designation ever since as 'commercial illustrator' sounded rather dodgy! She's been drawing professionally for just under a decade and has hundreds of products manufactured from her drawings through the studio she runs. Alicia was born and brought up in the Middle East and currently works and lives in Bengaluru with her husband, dog, guinea pig and lots of pencils. She writes her own author's bio. It's not a skill she's terribly great at.
