I like the clear painting style for this - cartoony but the lighting is vivid and clear, especially in the deep blue shadows, and the blown out wood texture on the banister.  The character’s sensual pose adds mystique; are they a male or female?  What are the yellow things on their head?  

His books were special to him.  They represented all the knowledge he had obtained, and the knowledge waiting to be absorbed, and he could not let them go. They were everywhere, in shelves stretching the length of entire rooms, with hundreds of books crammed into them, of all varying shapes and sizes.  They were on the kitchen table and on the toilet and even lying on the staircase.  He was a man drowning in literature.
