      • Agreed. For me, it’s hard to know if back then, was it:
        1. That people were all hideous with flat faces?
        2. That artists were just awful at creating dimension?

        • I wonder. All the middle age art depicting warfare is very cartoon like. Their heads were always too big, and the children looked like adults with small bodies. That’s my opinion! And I am the expert when it comes to crappy art as you know, Erin!

  1. Personally, I thought the tortured soul was a very good likeness of Johnny Depp. Poor Drawing Lady. She could get with Little Gregory and work on children’s bible stories.

    • Oh that’s a really good idea Russell, I think those two could use a project to keep them out of mischief! And he looks exactly like Johnny Depp. Maybe it’s his great great grandpappy! 😀

  2. Maybe Drawing Lady would get a better response from her class, if instead of medieaval people, she brought in models of medieval torture devices.

    Working models….

  3. I love how your second drawing morphed from an oddly-matched couple of co-conspirators to an overbearing bald man and his frightened… um… companion.

  4. Perfectly captures the medieval couple as the man consoles the lady who whose guinea pig exhales its last dying breath as it passes away in her hand.

  5. LOL!!!!!!! OMG!! I just almost fell off my chair!! The drawings from the class are priceless! They never fail to crack me up. Doesn’t the medieval tortured soul look like Johnny Depp? Hahahahah!
    The woman in the medieval couple is worth printing and hanging on my refrigerator. Every time I go to eat, I’ll see that and laugh so hard that I’ll get a core workout instead! Perfect!

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
