Mo is illustrating a story about Little Red Riding Hood for a children’s magazine. She has a very limited timespan for working before her hand starts to hurt too much, so efficiency is critical.
When I look over her shoulder, she’s drawing Little Red Riding Hood as an alligator, which won’t work for the assignment.
I ask Mo why she’s drawing it.
“Because it makes me happy,” she says.
And that is all you need to know about Mo.
