MICHEL GONDRY PAINTED ME A TRANSGENDER STRIPPER

The short version of this story is that I paid Eternal Sunshine/Green Hornet director Michel Gondry to draw me a transgender stripper. AND DRAW ME A TRANSGENDER STRIPPER HE DID.

The slightly more detailed version is that back in April, Gondry was offering a promotion through his website, where for $19.95 plus shipping, he would draw your portrait based on a picture provided via email.  So like any rational person would, I paid him the 20 bucks and sent in this picture I found of a naked… some kind of performer… with a bottle of Hennessy in her butt (only I sent the uncensored version). Then today I received this fetching water color, hand signed by the artist himself.  And you can tell it’s an authentic original, because there’s even paint on the reverse side.  I’m a little sad that Gondry didn’t paint the penis, but I can hardly argue with someone who so beautifully captures the essence of his subject.
