My November 2017 Lady of the Month is another person who would probably not expect to get a portrait since we haven’t chatted in years. Athena! We met at a mindless data entry job in Chicago. She introduced me to podcasts, which quickly became an addiction. We bonded over our love of cats and video games. Sometimes we would take little mini adventures from the tedium of our job to do fun Chicago things like ice skating in Millenium Park and visiting the French Market in the Ogilvie Train Station. She was one of the last people I would see in Chicago on a mostly daily basis, but we both moved away. I love Athena because she is adventurous, creative, and easy to talk to. She just bought her first house so now she will have a new piece of artwork to hang!
