Diffee Doodle Sibling Rivalry

My brother's Diffee Doodle has arrived! Diffee Doodles, if you haven't heard, are unique compositions by cartoonist Matthew Diffee, who a while back generously offered to give the drawings to his fans. Some 1500 people signed up before he came to his senses. He's been drawing ever since. Now he's about two-thirds of the way through the project.

My brother's Diffee Doodle depicts a half-length portrait of a curmudgeonly older man wearing glasses and a v-neck sweater under a shirt collar. Mine, you may recall, is a full-length portrait of a curmudgeonly middle-aged man with thinning hair and ballooning head in a business suit. Here's where the sibling rivalry comes in: who got the better curmudgeon?

The Diffee Doodle giveaway is over, but if you sign up for the Diffeeville Dispatch newsletter, you can still get a free Diffee Doodle print. Not too shabby!
