In a small town where all knew all, wondered a peasant lady nobody knew. But her only friend was a young boy, brought her hot tea and leftover stew.

In those burnin' wintry Decembers, he'd pick dirty pennies up off the cold street. And while his mother was out Christmas shopping, he'd say, "Come on in, warm your feet. As long as you share with me stories". So she spoke on the product of war,
"My mother never knew who she could be, as my father lay drunk on the floor."
And she spoke of the cart that she wheeled, had keys with no locks, and guitars with no stings, and a puzzle that could never be finished, "but this is my home, these broken things are..."

This is awesome Steph & I love this song too!

Ian Leino

Such expressive linework! The whole piece is great, but especially the woman's face and the wooden bench.

Lhiiiz

The drawing is lovely, I think the line quality of the bench and the cart with her belongings is especially nice. I wish the colors were slightly more faded, but that's just nitpickiness. It's really well done.

$5 says I'm not the only person who skim read the title as 'Dirty Penises'. I don't know the song, but I shall investigate! Nice art, Mezo!

I really like the color, I wish you use the pink somewhere in the illustration as well, it really fits in there.

i love the seat, i love her slip, i like the trolley and hope a design where a boy holding a coin works out half as well for you as it did for me...

Love the background elements just barely hinted at but take up so much of the design that you never notice this. Great elderly woman's face, you can see the warmth in her body start to burn again.
