"Do not attempt to find any sort of meaning in this mess." You've been warned! This is actually a second version of a thing I drew in a free-form optional area in the Famous Artists Course talent test sometime in the early 50s. I had it back from them (and yes, in a way I did take the course, but that's another story for another time), and somebody from the school I was going to at the time (high school/college prep level) absconded with it. Like "Choreographer," there is a hidden image in it (check the fish if you've missed it). But other than that, it was meant to be a pot pourri of things I liked, such as Dali and Yves Tanguy and Al Capp. The resemblance between the bottom guy at the right and Li'l Abner is not coincidental I was drawing mostly with ball point pens in those days (this also used colored pencil), and every so often the ink buildup would leave a blot behind where there should have been a normal line. Hence the chin whiskers on Mammy Yokum's pride & joy...
