miss iggy stands for a portrait

Schoolgirl Iggy was reading an anthropology book one night when Lauren arrived home from work.  
"I don't have a project for Thursday yet, and I don't want it to be another photo so I think I'll make a stencil or a sketch. Why are you reading my book?"

"It has nice pictures.  My philosophy book doesn't have any."

"Should it have pictures?  Anyway, I want to draw something.  Will you be my subject?"

"Gladly!  Right now?"

Lauren was already getting her sketchpad and watercolor pencils.

"I'll make it actual size!" said Lauren, excited.

And Schoolgirl Iggy, giddy about the project, smiled and did her best pose.

Same calligraphic handwriting as on the postcard you sent me! I didn't know you can watercolorize colored pencils! *lightbulb!*

Miss Iggy becomes fine art...wooot! :)
