dear boss: will you be my pictionary partner?
running errands. fill the tank with gas, get the flat tire patched, pick up some groceries--and buy a mailbox lock. pretty standard, right? but this is where working for an artist makes errands more fun: when all of the usually brusque and rude hardware store employees gather around oohing at a twenty-second explanatory drawing instead of cocking their heads and saying, "you want WHAT?!"--as though 'lock for mailbox' is a phrase from the martian language...sometimes pictures work better than words.
