Drawing In The Writer

Flannery O'Connor and Pheasant, Self Portrait, 1953

Flannery O'Connor, when she wasn't writing short stories, painted canvases and created cartoons.  In fact, she crafted enough cartoons that they've been collected in a book boldly titled, Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons.
Such a clever girl.  Oh, and she had the good sense to not go out drinking with Patricia Highsmith when they were both staying at Yaddo Artist Colony.   As my grandmother used to say, she (Highsmith) was a heller.
