(edited to include the word 'painted'. Since I do a lot of digital art, I really should differentiate.)
I have a confession: I'm not a wiz on the sewing machine. In fact, I'm pretty unskilled. OH, the shame I've brought upon my family name. The little ric rac enhanced heidi dresses my grandmother sewed for me....the pinstriped brazer my mother made for my 6th grade graduation...and me? what have I made for my offspring? some of the most lopsided jammie pants in the history of pants. Usually with crooked seams and exposed bits of ravelling fabric.

“Oh look,” snotty mcgripsalot snotted snottily, “it’s another Michael Buble,” and rolled her eyes. Except, she didn’t pronounce his name ‘Boo-Blay’ as is correct but rather ‘Bubble’. I can't help but smirk.
Young Barista cooed, ‘ooo, I love Michael Buble.’ (pronounced correctly)
Snotty huffed embarassedly, ‘is that how you say it? I’ve never even heard of the guy’ chuckling disengeniously.
Now, I'm enjoying this a little too much. It was just too fun to see that mix of anger and embarrassment, not unlike the look on Goofing off boy's face.
Now, Young Barista was smart enough to realize she’d made a tactical error. She began asking questions about the correct amounts of milk, the syrup to powder ratio of my drink order. She did this, I believe, to restore the balance of power and not incur the wrath of Snotty.
After allowing Snotty to laugh and ask her if she’d ever made a latte before, Young Barista began extolling the virtues of Michael Buble. All was restored to order.
Two more unnecessary employees entered the building and inquired as the the contents of the box that Snotty was digging into.
Snotty hautily explained that she was unpacking a rack of Michael BOO-BLAY CDs, holding each syllable for an unnecessarily long time. She then smiled triumphantly at Young Barista as though it were she who had been right all along.
“Oh, I love that guy, “ the unnecessary co-worker chimed.

I'm giving this piece a more cartoonish look with less detailed features. The face, hair and sweater are essentially done but the hands and the chair are still being worked on.
Here, you can see the hard shell of the original drawing juxtaposed with the smoothness of the face and the 'fluffy' look of the sweater.
