Same color shirt as the OP. Geez, as the yea... er... decades go by, you forget just how ridiculous Shatner's hair was.

So is a Telecaster harder to draw than a Stratocaster?

Ditto. It's been decades since I've read any of them but I think 'God Bless You Mr Rosewater' might be a helpful book for our present times.

OP...it's a good life.

Teles are indeed difficult to draw I am told. Love,Vonnegut myself. Loved slaughterhouse 5 and everything I read after. Really loved his cameo in "back to school".

Oh and I failed to mention in my earlier post that I do like the drawing.

I read Breakfast of Champions in college when a very attractive girl gave it to me. I was hooked on Vonnegut from there. Never got much farther than the book with the girl, but that’s OK, it all worked out in the end.

A wheel is a wheel to her, perhaps, and it's hard enough to draw radial, much less 3x.
I like the recognition of the spokes on the other side. That's important. She sees deeper.

The sweat indicates your focus.
Perhaps she's tried to get your attention while you built a wheel, or she recognizes the zen going into lacing.

I believe there is already a cartoonist out there drawing a similar rabbit, without eyes, I think.

The square glasses may be attributable to your taste in music, or boxers vs. briefs.

Not sure why a guitarist would have 5 (total) fingers, but I'm guessing rabbits don't.

The choice of rabbit, hmm, vulnerability? Vegan? um, other characteristics?

The t-shirt, well, we all understand that. Note the choice of no logo.

The "Biiiii …. iiiikkkkkkke" appears to indicate you are pretty much crazy.

That will be $3.50, no more meds needed.

You now understand yourself completely.

She is wonderful, and smart. You are a rabbit.

I adore sloths, as Tele can attest to. They really do grow algae and all kinds of filth in their fur. Fascinating disgusting creatures! However it should be noted that I bathe quite fastidiously and regularly so the algae is only a joke here.
