This was ultimately a fun one for me. My art friend from college, Lana, who now lives in Northern Ireland, asked me to draw a comic of her parrot. She sent me a photo months ago and I worked on it but wasn’t very pleased with how it turned out. So it sat around on the back burner for a long time. Finally, earlier this month, I spent some time and made some more drawings for her and put them in the mail. I even did a cartoon envelope for her like my Navy pal Eric Thibodeau used to do.

My grandfather’s name was Art. I always liked that name, in part because I like making art. Today’s post is a drawing of a drawing I made at the time of his passing 25 years ago. I’m amazed at how difficult it is to make a drawing of my own drawing. I made twelve of these this morning and no two are alike. I don’t even think any of these come close to the original. But here they are, along with the original drawing.
