  7. Soph, your images are such fun to look at, and full of life and energy. Don't worry about being a "bad blogger" (infrequent). Creating takes time, and so much of doing it requires re-doing it. Artists never finish! We just let go of a piece at some point in the process.

    May you live long in good health, so you can produce thousands of works.

    "In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michaelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had years of democracy and peace, and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock."

  20. Dear Soph!

    We really love your art!

    We are two independent filmmakers from Cologne, Germany,
    right now in post production of our first feature film “HANS DAMPF”,
    based on the Grimm brothers fairy tale “Hans in Luck/Lucky Hans”.

    Here is our film blog with a lot of making of photos:

    As we would really love you to design our movie poster,
    it would be awesome, if you could contact us.

    Thanks a lot in advance and best wishes from Cologne, Germany

  22. Hi Sophie!
    My name is Samantha Meier, and I'm a senior at Harvard College writing my sociology thesis on Wimmen's Comix. I was hoping to contact you to see if you would be willing to be interviewed, but can't find a contact email for you on your blog. You can email me back at sameier@fas.harvard.edu, and I can send you more information about me and my thesis.
    I hope to be able to talk to you!
    best,
    Sam Meier

  23. Dear Sophie,

    I like your work a lot and would like to commission one page of artwork on a specific topic for possible inclusion in an academic book or article (not about you as an artist, art, comics, illustration, or anything of the kind).

    You might find the topic fun or at least sort of interesting. If you have any interest in this sort of thing, please let me know by email: jcw2119@caa.columbia.edu

    Thanks!
    John Wright

  26. Hello all,
    My email is sophiecrumb@gmail.com, if you really gotta talk to me about something. I dont spend hours on the internet so i aint into chatting and blabla-ing, so serious, minimal emails will be more efficient with me.
    I appreciate any professional or work related emails of course !
    PS : I haved moved and i finally just got an internet connection (very slow, middle of nowhere but better n' nothin), so i will be able to put up on here regularly now... hopefully.
    thank you for visiting and for your priceless support !
    Sophie

  29. SOPHIE! It's byron. What's your e-mail? I hope you check this. My name has a link to my contact. Miss ya, and by the way, the art looks even more incredible than ever and you know I mean it.

    The vaseline jar and the pink one look so real. The background looks [sur]real. You have definitely evolved.

  30. Are you coming to Argentina sometime, anytime (soon)? We all respect your timings and all but please at least add a little drawing here on your blog, a sketchbook page, anything, 'cause it's starting to itch and I can't scratch my crumb urge. Thank you, anyhow.
