This drawing endured scrutiny by my husband, his friend, Dennis, and my two brothers. This is not a crowd known to spare you their opinions or to mince words. While I've fixed his "girlie" arms, it's still a mystery to my dinner companions why an Asian man wears a Cuban shirt.

My reply, "He's not Asian, he's Emo." I know that explains nothing.

My brother (Charles) Jesse, who looks not at all emo, but exactly equally like his mother and his father, suggested that the subject needs tats and I think that's about right.
