Agatha Christie7:30 AM
I was looking through some of my older drawings while I was at my parents' house last week, and I came across this little gem. It's a portrait of Agatha Christie, the author of many mystery novels, that I think I drew for a school report. I can't remember how young I was when I drew it, but I always kind of liked it. I could never draw this now, with this style (or lack of style), and it's fun for me to see how my drawings have evolved over the years. I love the teeny-tiny hand (it's like a foreshadowing of Kristen Wiig in those SNL skits...) and the weird, wide nose that's attached to the eyebrows. I have very fond memories of watching Hercule Poirot mysteries with my parents when I was younger, and I have Agatha to thank for that. And she, of course, has me to thank for such a stellar portrait.
