My 4-year-old son and I were having our "Craft time" (or "crapt time" as he calls it) and we were coloring in a Mickey Mouse coloring book. One of the pages asked us to "draw a Disney character". Well, since the book was already chock full of good drawings of Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy, I chose to draw the Aracuan Bird from "Three Caballeros". I thought it turned out pretty good for a crayon drawing from memory. Not sure which is dorkier, my choice, or the fact that I'm posting a coloring book page for everyone on the internet to see.
In Widescreen, no less. Over the weekend, someone asked me who Lee Van Cleef was ("Death Rides a Horse" was coming on Encore Westerns.). I tried to explain by describing him and listing a few of his films, but to no avail. Finally I whipped out my sketchbook. "Oh, HIM. That hawk-faced guy!"
