Folks, I could use your help. This is serious.
As some of you know, I used to earn money drawin' pitchers. Not long ago, I was tasked with drawing caricatures of a whole bunch of famous movie characters/actors. After days of frustration, I finally started to get my chops back -- or so I thought.
And then I showed this image to a couple of intimates, neither of whom could recognize a single face. Admittedly, the drawing is not finished -- no ink, no color, just pencils -- but I still thought that we had entered the recognizability zone.
My ladyfriend finally recognized just one of the faces...the guy on the far right at the back of the line, the least-famous of the bunch. This, despite the fact that she hasn't even seen
that movie. And even then, with that clue, she couldn't hazard a guess as to who the other guys might be!
Have I really lost it completely? Be honest. If I have
lost it, or if I never had it, then I can decide here and now to stop wasting what little time is left to me. Better to sell my art supplies and make some extra cash
