If you and your wife were out for New Year's Eve and your portrait was drawn for $2 by a Mexican-American artist, you might look something like this:

The bigger question I would have is, where is the pocket square?

That would make sense. It also seems as though you have no shoulder, and you were also wearing a box-collar t-shirt with buttons on it


Still a pretty good sketch, but I don't know what either of you look like so I can't judge its accuracy.

Looks like earrings to me.

I would say that any depicted emotion is a reflection of the feelings of the artist. And if he's getting $2, they probably suck.

well it is a good thing you got the pic done before Kent Wang came along with a needle, some cotton and a job offer.

The guy reminds of a young Gatsby full of hope for that orgiastic future...just run a little faster and jump a little higher, and he'll win his love. Turns out image he's been chasing after is merely a mirage of his own ideals. The lady depicted in the drawing, and I mean no offense, looks like one of them speakeasy broads.
