her missionary his girl

These drawings are in homage to a painting entitled "A New Letter From Her Missionary" which appeared in the January 1994 (check date?) issue of Ensign magazine. Although well-done artistically, I found the painting to be overly sentimental and more than a little cheesy.

So in gentle mockery, I drew a companion picture to it, which I dubbed "A New Letter From His Girl." My intent was to humorously portray the excitement felt by missionaries when one receives a letter from a girl back home. To provide the needed context, I also drew a cartoon version of the original painting. My apologies to the original artist.
