    Here’s a new illustration I did for Popshot Magazine issue 6 - the Love issue. It accompanies a really lovely poem, although I haven’t found out the author yet. 

When I Say I Have Come to Love You

When I say I have come to love you
I do not mean that I have become
accustomed to your morning moods
or the way you reduce my friends
to nervous wrecks at parties.

When I say I have come to love you
I am not talking of time having passed,
of feelings that grew imperceptibly as flowers,
bursting one day into tender shocking blooms.

When I say I have come to love you
it is not because you please me.
You are reckless, you are spoilt,
and you are careless with my heart.

God help me. 
When I say I have come to love you
I mean that is what I am here for.

    When I Say I Have Come to Love You

    When I say I have come to love you

    I do not mean that I have become

    accustomed to your morning moods

    or the way you reduce my friends

    to nervous wrecks at parties.

    When I say I have come to love you

    I am not talking of time having passed,

    of feelings that grew imperceptibly as flowers,

    bursting one day into tender shocking blooms.

    When I say I have come to love you

    it is not because you please me.

    You are reckless, you are spoilt,

    and you are careless with my heart.

    God help me. 

    When I say I have come to love you

    I mean that is what I am here for.
