Default Re: The Forum Art Gallery

Back when I was taking those college art courses, I was approached by a couple to design several pen and ink posters for children to color. I did eight, I think. Anyway, I would draw in 2b pencil, ink in the work, and then erase the pencil work to leave a nice clean image. I had a tiny apartment and would work outside when the weather was nice. On weekends some local kids would come over to watch.
One day there were a couple of kids sitting and drawing with me when a little girl walked over. She looked at my work and asked, "are you an artist?" When I answered in the affirmative, she asked what else I drew? I rattled off a few things which didn't seem to impress her. Until being the smart ass that I am, I tossed out, "and if I don't take a bath often enough , I draw flies." She sort of lit up and asked, "Will you draw me a fly?" How could I turn down a request like that? So, I sent her home with a little cartoon of a fly riding a tricycle. A short while later her mother showed up with my drawing. She was angry that I had drawn "cute cartoons" for other children in the complex, but had drawn her daughter "a disgusting fly." Sigh. Good thing that she didn't ask me to 'draw a conclusion'.....

My old joke was, "I take a shower once a month whether I need it or not."
