December 1999: Pen and Colored Pencils.
Caption: June: A day at the beach. . . .
Explanation: Ivy and her friends build a sandcastle on a Florida beach. Ivy has never made a drip castle before, and it is quite a novelty for her considering her past sandcastles have all been taller than she is and strong enough to stand on. On this day, Ivy plays in the ocean with her pals, and later lets them all in on a rather significant secret. Pictured characters: Mandy, Nicky, Ivy, and Andrea. (From THTIB #2, chapter 20)
IVY TRIVIA: Ivy has literally lived on a beach most of her life, but the number of times she’s worn a bathing suit (as pictured above) can be counted on one hand (even by her!). Ivy prefers to swim either fully clothed or naked, often jumping into water spontaneously without the time to change into a garment specifically designed for swimming. Bathing suits are also not the most flattering attire for her figure, or lack thereof.
