Two Latinas, separated by a generation, hinder and help each other find their place in a world they never made.

Ten years in the making (and torn from the pages of the legendary Love and Rockets), Jaime Hernandez’s newest graphic novel skillfully weaves two generations of his beloved characters into a satisfying story of love—both young and middle-aged. Life Drawing darts primarily between the youthful Tonta and the venerable Maggie. Tonta has a crush on her art teacher, as well as an axe to grind with an older woman in the neighborhood. When Tonta finds out the two are a couple, well, it gets complicated. And Tonta does not handle complication well. Life Drawing showcases Hernandez's brilliant talent for character, weaving relationships, rejections, infidelities, and adventures involving: Tonta’s self-involved sisters Vivian, Violet, and Muñeca; her colorful pals Gomez, Judy Fair, and Brown Alice; her mother, the infamous ‘Black Widow of the Valley’; and of course, the two great loves of Maggie’s life, Ray and Hopey. There’s also a forest spirit, two weddings, some cosplay, a little pole dancing, and page after page of breathtaking comics by the medium’s most wide-eyed romantic. Did we mention the weddings?
