Are you Artbabe?

Ohhhhhhh, geez! No, I’m not. Artbabe is a fictional character who graces the front covers of my comic-book series Artbabe, and occasionally appears in comics that are printed elsewhere, but, so far, never in Artbabe itself. She is a painter. She is based on a real person I once knew, whose real name is Andrea, and who was (is?) a fashion designer. That said, even my closest friends insist that I am Artbabe, even though I look nothing like her. Who knows why. They’re very adamant about it. But, I mean, a lot of people wear glasses, for god’s sake!
