When I read Marcia Hanlon’s haiku, I could almost feel those metal sliders from the Brannock’s device cupping my feet. As a child I was fascinated by having my feet measured, and back to school shopping was a favorite bookend to summer vacation. As I thought about how to illustrate the poem, my mind drifted to a photo my friend Stephanie had shared with me of herself as a baby girl, decked out in yellow and white frills, with a purse, looking every bit the sophisticated shopper. With her permission, I labored to enhance the grainy photo with colored pencils and tried to summon a likeness, old feelings, and memories.
