Draw Tippy

OK, I haven't painted in a while, but I did manage to do this very difficult sketch. Do you think I should go into wildlife illustration?
Or portraiture?
When I was 7, I thought I was the shit because I could draw Tippy. He is sporting his dy-no-mite hat and turtleneck. Is it cannibalism for a turtle to wear a turtleneck?

The Turtles rocked out with Happy Together when I was a baby. Another Turtle hit, Elenore, was written as a joke. The Rutles, however, were completely serious.

I think your talent in drawing Tippy entitles you to an art school tuition reduction.

I like your marbling efforts. Sounds like you had a nice family trip.

Oh my gosh Dar! What a trip down memory lane.

Would you believe those correspondence art classes are still running? But I haven't once seen it mentioned in a working artist's curriculum vitae.

Of course, today I'm reading the current newsletter from virtual art academy. No affiliation with Tippy. I like to sponge up information from every source I can find.
