e-reader girl

I think the title of this image from The Paper Shelter is actually "coffee break,"  but she looks like a college girl about to sit down and do some reading to me.  I used the current Sketch Saturday sketch for this, taking a little liberty with the side elements on the sketch.  The image is colored in pencils and places a little to one side to accommodate the appropriate, but rather large, sentiment (possibly from Impression-Obsession).  I pierced around the main panel, and partially because I misplaced some piercings, and partly to fill space, I added a second row in some areas.
The pink ribbon coordinates with the rest of the colors much better in real life than in the photo.  The bow is attached to a white paper clip.

 Isn't there a saying that goes something like: there's nothing simple about clean and simple?  Or no, is it just me? Anyway, I trie...
