The Rosheen Series
From time to time, during particularly painful business meetings at work, I draw downer art. Since I am often sitting next to my colleague Rosheen, I sign them by her and hang them in my office. Everyone knows who the real artist is, of course. The best part is when Rosheen gets riled up, her voice raises about 100 octaves... it's fun to do stuff like this to provoke her. My life doesn't suck, I know that. But we all have our maudlin moments. Even my acquaintance who vehemently claims not to have such moments is victim to his bouts of dramatic self-pity and sour grapes. The sketch here is a bit unique for me... it's in ball-point pen, which I rarely write with, to say nothing of drawing.
