What a week it has been! Way back in December, my good friend Jason Methner asked me to draw a children’s book he had written so he could propose to his long-time girlfriend, Molly Lipsitz. I jumped at the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake that their family could cherish forever. Long story short, she said “Yes!” and I breathed a sigh of relief. It was a little daunting being asked to draw something that would have such a sentimental value on what would be one of the most important days of their lives, but of course, Molly absolutely LOVED the book. And she wasn’t the only one. Jason proposed at the Chicago Public Library, who in turn posted the story to their CPL facebook page. From there, their story travelled the inter-tubes all the way to the Huffington Post and then Today.com. It has since been covered in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and the happy couple has been receiving congratulations all week from complete strangers. I couldn’t be happier for Jason & Molly; the entire world deserves to see what true love looks like.
And THEN it got shared by Buzzfeed.
