The Artist (#3.13), 19 January 2014
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

There is an artist in Blanche's museum who is very popular, not only in the world but also with ladies. He wants to make a statue and the three of them are all eager to pose. When they find out that he makes sketches of them all they get upset and demand him to make a choice, but he says that he will not do it now and they will see the result at the exhibition. At the end turns out he chose them all.

A pretty fun story with a great ending. Love how he chose them all because they compliment each other. This is also a great tribute to their friendship. And it was also awesome to see that he was gay and how shocked they all were!
