About This Image
When I moved to New York City in 1997, I drew this card my first weekend there, at a restaurant bar in Tribeca called The Screening Room (it was attached to an art house cinema next door). I was very single and very alone around then, I hadn’t made any real friends yet, it was a very scary and lonely time for me. Still, I imagined what it must be like to fall in love, to have someone you would want to say these words to, and actually mean them. It would be a poignant contrast to my current situation, which is what exactly gave the cartoon its bite.
I gave this print to my wife the day we got engaged, so all that poignancy paid off in the end.

A Word on Framing - Or, why you should let us do it for you:
Having spent your hard earned cash on a beautiful piece of art we strongly recommend professional framing.
Our limited edition giclée prints and serigraphs are printed on the best archival paper available. It is designed to last a very, very long time. We've seen clients who have taken both routes; inexpensive poster frames, which will ensure that the print will not survive the fullness of time, and top end, proper museum type framing.
We have contracted with a local framer, so that you can get a really high quality professionally framed print for probably half of what your frame shop would charge.
We frame our giclée prints using a high quality mat between the print and the plexiglass. For our larger serigraphs we make shadow box frames so that the artwork is set back from the UV plexiglass, and the artwork is floating, 'hinged' to a back board that will make it stand out and look amazing. The moldings we offer are 1" 5/8 (4.25cm) minimalist sleek black or white matte lacquered wood.
Special framing requests are welcome. Questions? email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
