Does This Look Like Richard Nixon?


Earlier today, I was on an exceedingly boring conference call, and, as per my convention, I began doodling. I've been reading Anna Karenina, and I just finished the part where Anna and Vronsky go to Italy and visit a Russian artist there. The artist has just completed a work of Pilate and Christ. I thought, "Why don't I try to draw what I imagine that painting to look like?" The result? You decide. In my opinion, Pilate appears to be a zombie-looking Richard Nixon. I drew it on the fly, with nothing to use as a model. I really hope I don't have our 37th President on my mind...

Any thoughts?

I love that your first thought while on a boring conference call is "I'm going to pretend I'm that artist from Anna Karenina." My first thought is more along the lines of "I'm going to pretend I'm that woman in the M. Night Shyamalan movie who stabs herself in the neck with a chopstick."

Keep drawing! (And yes, it looks like Richard Nixon).
