I’ve always felt as though I’m a bit of a cartoon character so I was very happy this morning to see that someone else sees me that way too! My fiancé commissioned our friend Nate Oldham to draw a caricature portrait of us and here is the result:
Yes, that’s us at Goodwill doing what we do best- finding obscure records and over-sized suits. While I’m posting this on April Fool’s day, I’m not praising this drawing in jest- it’s difficult to capture someone’s personality with a pen, be it in writing or art, and I love the visual cues Nate chose to identify us. For example, even someone who has read my blog in passing knows I have a passion for rescuing strange records from sale bins so it’s perfect that I’m holding something literally labeled “Obscure Record.” Plus, there’s the added bonus of my clothing in the drawing being inspired by the outfit I wore for the first day of spring:
Thank you, Nate!
Now, to close this post, here’s the awesomely colorful video for the song “Rummage Sale” by Nate’s band Rotundo Sealeg:
