Like so many teenagers, Mr. Man is going through his surrealist phase…
black & white
…their eyes are more
beautiful than our eyes.
and they can sleep 20 hours
when I am feeling
all I have to do is
watch my cats
– from “My Cats” by Charles Bukowski
written all over his face
portrait of the man as a young cat
This is not a drawing of Mr. Man — but I do love drawing him. My apartment is littered with doodles of his ridiculously wonderful face. My drawings of him are kind of junky and primitive, but I think they capture his specific brand of spunk. I recently texted a picture of Mr. Man that I had just drawn to a friend who asked if a small child had drawn it. He wasn’t being sassy, he was genuinely asking.
Anyway, there’s always this guy.
