Baby Megan Kelly is a cutie. Did you all see her last blog post? If you didn’t you really should, because there you will see the cuteness that is Baby Megan Kelly. I kept telling Madhuri– “I want to draw her” and she was encouraging about it but I wasn’t inspired to do it quite yet. BUT THEN Megan went ahead and made the bear cub comment (please refer to Madhuri Shekar’s last entry to read that little gem) and that changed everything.
Above is the result. It was effortless, really. I drew it late saturday night after the three of us (Madhuri, Megan and I) went to South Coast Rep to see David Henry Hwang’s “Chinglish”–which was really funny, btw.
I wanted to keep the drawing a secret, make multiple color copies, and use them for Valentine’s Day cards (hence the hearts), but then I remembered that required effort, so… that wasn’t going to happen.
Madhuri and Megan already know about this drawing, btw. I showed it to Madhuri on Sunday afternoon (via email) and to Megan in class earlier today (Madhuri and I both wanted to see her reaction, so we had to wait). Megan’s reaction wasn’t what we expected. She was confused.
“It’s Baby Megan Kelly”, said Madhuri.
“Is that a rolled up piece of paper?” asked Megan.
“No. It’s Madhuri “Cinnamon Stick” Shekar. See, she’s wearing her green coat”, I said.
“Oh”, Megan replied– still confused.
“Zury’s supposed to be the bear cub. See, the glasses”, Madhuri added.
“Oh”, said Megan, clearly still processing it.
Well, that was a bust.
