Ink Self-Portrait Drawing with Signature
"Vonnegut described his artwork as a pursuit that liberated him from the oppressive work of writing. In 'Fates Worse Than Death,' he wrote, 'My own means of making a living is essentially clerical, and hence tedious and constipating.… The making of pictures is to writing what laughing gas is to the Asian influenza.'" -- The New Yorker, Kurt Vonnegut’s Whimsical Drawings
