Brotherly Love

My brother's birthday was yesterday. Like all artists, I am poor, so I made a magic computer-picture of him, that he can use as an Avatar on various networking websites.

My brother is two years older than me, but we don't look that much alike. We also don't look that different. It has been said I am like a more extreme version of him. He is tall, but I am slightly taller. He has a square chin, but my jaw-line is obscenely harsh and angular. He has tastefully mussed hair. My hair is wildly unkempt. He has small, neatly trimmed sideburns. I have sideburns that touch my clavicle. And so on.

To be fair, we both wear glasses but his are more dark and crazy. We both are a little on the thin side, but he is even more emaciated. We both live in big-ish to big cities, but I live in MPLS and he lives in NYC.

Oh, and we both have about the same color hair.

So when I drew him, it kind of looks like when I draw me, but less dirty....

EDIT : I have realized there has never been a self-portrait post on this blog. So here is a drawing of myself from a while ago. Now compare the similarities betwixt the two. Note that although I mentioned my severe jaw-line, this portrait has no jaw to speak of. That is simply because jaws are not funny, and thin wiener-heads are....
