The Boy and His Other

Addendum: Oh boy, do I feel stupid now. It's not two days after I post this picture, and now I'm informed that she is no longer his Other. I'll probably have to delete this now, but I dont want to, not really.

I gotta tell you, I'm having a good time drawing these little things. It's been years since I did any drawing, and I was never spectacularly great at it, but it hasnt gotten any less fun for all the intervening years. When I drew the below picture of the family, I was only thinking of those in the house. Then The Boy came by right after I posted it, and I felt bad. He is a part of the family, even if he's not living here right now. Then I got down to the drawing.
They're not as easy as they look. Somehow, in a minimum of lines, you have to convey what the people you're depicting look like, which is kind of tough without many details, clothes, or body shapes.
