When reading Illustrator Dom & Ink's bio on his website it's easy to mistakenly assume you've found the love of your life. He loves dinosaur's, trashy tv, skinny jeans, comics... Like wow, like... what a guy! But then he admits to loving hawaiian shirts, and you're all like, I can't get with that sorry. I'd probably still pose for him though like Rose did for Jack in Titanic, so that speaks volumes about how I feel for someone who also loves dinosaurs.
I briefly wrote about Dom & Ink's Map My Heart earlier this year. It is a book about relationships, lovingly illustrated by Dom that looked like it might have made the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.
As it turns out, now that I've been sent a copy, Map My Heart is a survival guide to love and heartbreak that I actually recommend you revisit 364 days a year. I don't know about you, but I certainly don't have time to think about how shit falling in and out of love is on Christmas day, not with all that food around me.
Saying anything else about Map My Heart would spoil the numerous surprises that unfold in this super fun life companion. All I know is that after I have doodled my heart out onto its pages I will be keeping my paperback pal very close by as a reference and reminder not to make the same mistakes.
Trusting a stranger to mend your broken heart isn't something I'd go out of my way to advocate on my blog, but now that I've seen that Dom & Ink is selling "clever girl" raptor mugs, I know my heart is in good hands.
