Haven’t identified myself with realistic art in forever, but I thought it really cool that an old roomie, who I’d just befriended on facebook, recently posted a 30 year old drawing of mine that I thought was lost forever. I have deeper connections with Zappa now than then, so it touches the soul. I remember really getting into drawing that hair. Remember it also being taped to a wall in a dorm bathroom when I was a sophomore in college. Strange and good times. But not nearly as good as now. Have no idea how this particular roommate took the snapshot of the drawing, who would have been my senior flatmate instead. Here’s to you Charlie! Well done. And, of course, here’s to you, Frank. I feel like I know you much better now.
