True love not twee love brought to life in Soppy by Philippa Rice
Artist, illustrator and crocheter Philippa Rice has turned her life into a comic that celebrates the sweet, everyday world she shares with her illustrator boyfriend, Luke Pearson.
In a palette of red, white and black, the cartoon duo (both with raven dark hair and rosy red cheeks) do the washing up, head to the shops, snuggle on the sofa and squabble about who should answer the door. There are no grand sweep-you-off-your-feet gestures here, just small, heartwarming moments: “If I got zombied would you shoot me? No. I’d let you bite me.”
Now that sounds like true love.
