If you had paper and pencil, what would you draw right now?

I’m not sure. Could I write a note or a poem instead? If I had to draw, I would draw that woman’s butt over there. It’s shaped very well. Maybe that’s why artists always paint female nudes, because of the form. I think more artists do female drawings than males.

Maybe I’d do a silhouette of a woman. I’d really have to think about it. It would depend on the medium, but for pencil and paper, I’d try the silhouette. It’s not necessarily a detailed image; it’s devoid of little nuances that some drawings would require. It would be a Michelangelo type of thing.

I would draw a flower. Whenever I write a letter, I always draw a flower at the end of it. So, that’s probably what I’d draw right now. I don’t know why I do that in letters. I’ve painted flowers, although I don’t do that often. I just think it’s a pretty way to end a correspondence or letter.

I don’t know. I really don’t have a lot of artistic ability. If that doesn’t play into the picture, and I wasn’t being judged or anything…I’d try to draw something nice and peaceful. Something scenic and mellow, like a meadow or a field with lots of trees, something along those lines.

I would draw a Christmas tree. Not just because we just finished with Christmas and they’re on my mind. I’m a terrible doodler, but I draw a perfect Christmas tree. Well, more like I’ve perfected the pine tree. So often when I’m bored with paper in front of me, I end up just drawing them.

It would be that character they used to have in the TV Guide advertisement. Remember those? It was a contest and showed a cartoon character they wanted to see how well you drew. I’m guessing TV Guide doesn’t even do that anymore. In fact, TV Guide might not even be around anymore. So, I guess I’d draw the Van Halen logo. I used to always draw it on my folders and book covers in high school.
