NOOOOOO!!!!!!!

I found that drawing I told you about in You Want Fries with That?. (Thank God! I thought it was lost forever!)
I drew this in 1979, when I was 13.
That thing at the top that looks like a tulip is a piece of Sky Lab, crashing through a dinner party in a penthouse. The piece is flying up, because in my mind, when Sky Lab crashed into the ground, big pieces went flying up. Notice my preoccupation with fine art and furniture. Notice all the women have on high heels. Notice the terrified dinner guests running from the elegant table, because they know the cracking floor won't hold out much longer. Notice the toppling priceless statues and lighting fixtures. Notice the hole in the floor where people are falling to their doom, and some are hanging on for dear life. Notice the woman running behind the woman in the red dress, and her long, black opera gloves, and the woman behind her, glamorously posed in death in high heels, because some debris landed on her head. It's hard to make out, but notice the horrible precision of the random piece of Sky Lab debris hitting the ceiling chain of the chandelier, sending it crashing down onto some unfortunate party goers. Notice how crazy and gay I was when I was 13...

Is that also a woman who hanged herself, to the right? I hope that you are going to have that framed or at least analyzed by a professional psychologist.

I knew I'd get a comment from you...
No, that is not a woman who has hung herself, it is a statue of a woman, falling over. Look on the left, between the framed pictures, and there is it's sister statue....Symmetry! Balance!

I drew pictures of Barbara Mandrell when I was 13. I wonder which one of us was crazier...?

Are they statues of Marlo Thomas?

As someone who dreamt up miscarriages and infidelity for his action figures/dolls to act out, I totally get this.

I especially love the hole in the floor with the action/drama literally taken to another level.

(And as a total drama-queen gay kid, I was out of my mind with worry that Sky Lab would hit our house and destroy my stuff. Hmmmm, maybe I should post about that...)
