Puberty of a bluestocking

  A colour pencil illustration I created after coming across a charming 
bookworm in Cambridge central library. Rebelling against the stereotype portrayal of 
bluestockings, I believe bluestoking girls are truly beautiful, despite the thick glasses 
with a look of insecurity hidden underneath.


  1. This is so adorable!

  2. Excuse me, I do not know whether to call you, Minh, or Chau
    pardon my ignorance.
    Anyway, my intention is to tell you that this is a spectacular job.
    I congratulate you. :)))))))))))
