Ha! You thought I was going to draw another drinking vessel, didn’t you! Well, you thought wrong—feast your eyes on this:
What the hell is that? you ask.
Why, it’s a grasshopper finger puppet on a TV antenna, of course. Here it is with a little more context:
My friend Jack gave me these insect finger puppets last spring when I visited the Bay Area for the first time in several years. Actually, I think he got the puppets for Dylan’s daughter, Clara, but somehow they ended up coming home to Brooklyn with me. They now live on my TV’s antennae, which I think they beautify quite nicely.
I drew this standing up—because there’s nowhere near enough to sit, for a person of my nearsightedness—with a fine-tip Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen. So I’ve now fulfilled one of Susan’s drawing exercise suggestions.
