Guest Post: My father is an artist

I really didn’t feel like drawing today so I turned to my father for help.

His original Winnie (not pictured here because he hastily began erasing when I tried to take a picture of it) looked like a cross between a deranged rat and a worm. When I couldn’t suppress my giggle, he indignantly informed me that it was a Picasso version and a true artist would have been able to appreciate his vision.

The Kim family is an artistic bunch.
