When I draw someone on Monday Diary, it may not look the person at all. It has to do more with my impression of someone. Fr. Pfeiffer was pointing this out one day . . .
And by golly, I looked at him and realized that he really DIDN'T have blonde hair. Nobody was more surprised than me. But my impression of his is that he is a blonde and so I draw him as such.
So the other day I was at a gathering of priests at which Fr. Louis Thomas from St Francis de Sales was present. He said that he looked forward to the day that he would be drawn on Monday Diary but added, "I bet you can't draw me without being at least mildly offensive to somebody."
Today I take him up on his challenge in invite him on board to the Adam's Ale Monday Diary Calvacade of Characters!
Fr. Thomas is a great guy, terrible card player, and has a twin brother that I have mistaken for him on a number of occasions.
But it must be remembered that I do not draw people as they appear in everyday life. It is something about them that sticks out in my mind - some significant tidbit that forms the whole character much of which is completely fabricated.
The thing that really sticks out to me about Fr. Thomas is that he rides a motorcycle and so I think that I will probably end up drawing you . . .
