Okay, here's my best shot at capturing the essence of Bissette in a few lines:

Yes, indeedy this is why I'm a writer – a frustrated secret cartoonist, also.

I only attempted a caricature because arms and legs confound me. Drawing clothing does as well. I'm no good with feet either. And hands! Let's not bring those up.

I can hear the howls of derisive laughter now from my artist friends.

Perhaps I should offer to write the dust jacket bio instead. Maybe Steve would want me to give that a whirl.

Then again maybe not.

Next up in the draw Bissette contest: Dogboy!

Where's the flannel, man!

Mike Dobbs said...

Flannel's hard to draw to for me!

Mark Martin said...

Damn, Mike, that's pretty good! looks just like him!

I'd draw one for you, but I've drawn him before. And besides, I think you should just stop right now and declare yourself the champion.

Mark Martin said...

btw - I'm not kidding. I really don't think anybody's going to top that.

Mark Martin said...

Sorry to put the pressure on you Dogboy - but I *really* like Mike's!

My password is "osesseme"! One more syllable and it would be "opensesseme".

Mark Martin said...

Those are ASTERISKS around the word *really* - signifying boldness. NOT QUOTE MARKS, which would signify satire. It's hard to tell because they are so small. I just want to make sure my intention is clear!

New password - pridess! That would be the Drag Queen of the gay pride parade!

Mark Martin said...

HA! next password - purvet!

A tiny pervert!

Members only discount club store where you have to guess the price!

that one does not inspire me, so I'll go now.
