thanksgiving at bissette's 2006


I think it was 2006. He'll correct me if I'm wrong, and correct me about the attendees if that's wrong. I think this is, l to r, The World's Greatest Cook, Bissette, his daughter Maia, his step-daughter-in-law Mary and stepson Mike, and Mr. Dobbs! Bissette's honey Marge and Dobbs' honey Mary were off-camera to the left.

Up until Saturday this was a rough pencil sketch I drew sitting in Bissette's ex living room (they have since moved, so all you burglars out there can just ignore this floor plan). I had some time to kill Saturday so I colored it and messed around with it.

Steve had bears in his yard at his old place. Bears, dude.

(Don't you have bears in your yard, too?)

I'm watching a very wet deer outside my writing area window right now, as I write this.

Great pic, Mark! I think your I.D.s are spot on, but I'll check with Marge... the chick with the glasses might be Mary's friend, whose name I am ashamed to say I've forgotten.

Bissette and Dobbs?
Bissette in a cape? with a fat head?

I don't see it!
And that doesn't look much like Mike D, either.
Am I MISSING SOMETHING?

There is an awful lot of facial hair missing from Mssrs Bissette and Dobbs.

Of course Bissette does not have a cape or a fat head. Dobbs does not have pointy ears. Mike Bleir has two eyes, not one. It's not supposed to be an accurate portrait, it's just a sketch. I took great liberties. The pictures on the wall are different. The chairs are not accurate. I don't think Bissette was reading a newspaper...

Strangely, the female characters are pretty dead-on portraits! I couldn't get then that accurate if I tried. Just dumb luck!

I live for these moments.

Mark said I didn't have "a fat head."

Amazing.

But I DO read the newspaper. Two of 'em. Every day.
