Sketches of Four Southern Presidents
Of the four, the easiest to draw was Jimmy Carter, and the hardest was George Bush. But there always comes a point when I’m drawing caricatures like this when I just give up. It is what it is, I think. I did the best I can and that’s all that’s required, and I’m happy regardless of how good these drawings turn out to be. I wish I could bring the same perspective to my writing, which rarely brings that kind of joy. The pursuit of excellence is dispiriting.
