Picatso was my first "conceptual drawing" done for a contest in Manchester promoting the play "Cats". I was pleased that I received "honorable mention". Some of the winners of the contest are professional illustrators and they certainly deserved to win. I had fun coming up with the idea. The French words at the bottom are a play on the "cat" theme, they say "The artist Picatso (Pichatseau) in open air"; the Spanish words on the "easel" say "el gato" - "the cat" -- just playing around with language.
I am actually getting to use some of my rusty French now as I am tutoring a woman from Algeria. We manage to understand each other with my broken French and her broken English. I haven't really used the language since 1974 (when I returned to America from Belgium), so this is a good review.
