According to anthropologists, one of the first signs early man
gave that he intended to be more cultural than the rest of the beasts, was wben he fashioned a portrait of one of the tribe members on a cave wall. It seems reasonably safe to assume that shortly thereafter, a fun-loving antedeluvian happened along, felt a certain impulse, and drew a mustache on that same portrait.
The psychologists tell us that this impulse is still prevalent in modern man, and certainly there are many mutilated billboards throughout the land to attest to this.
Have you ever felt the urge? Perhaps you have, but resisted, though the blood pounded in your veins and a voice within kept shouting: "Go on and do it -- there's nobody watching!"
Well, just in case you are a frustrated mustache-drawer-on-billboards, pull up a couch and let this psychiatrist help get the frustration out of your system.
Got your pencil ready?
Here is a face such as you might see in any ad for toothpaste or hair rinse or some such.
There, do you feel better ? You are now a graduate of the Hoff School of Mustache Drawers On Billboards and can practice anywhere in this state, provided a cop doesn't catch you.
Only one request-layoff Miss Rheingold. She might be one of my daughters.
Of course it would be worse than sacrilege to deface "art" like this.
Not forgetting our first day's work, take note of the simple lines, straight and curved, that I have used in making these cartoons.
Arrows indicate the curved lines and straight ones you have been practicing. (Or did you put on the television and forget?)
