Peering at the finished caricature drawing for which she had been posing for 20 minutes, area woman Theodora Bright expressed disappointment that it was just one giant tooth.
“I mean, I’ve been told I have a toothy grin,” said Bright, adding that she agreed to pay street artist Emile Bazin to draw a parody of her face after passing his stand on the way home from work. “But he asked me what I was interested in, and I said tae kwon do and clarinet. So I kind of assumed one of those would be in the drawing…guess not.”
“It’s a pretty nice-looking tooth, though,” Bright conceded.
Sources confirm Bazin asked Bright to change her pose four times during the session, each time altering her position in ways that had no bearing on her smile. “He told me to cross my legs at one point,” Bright said. “My legs are nowhere in the picture! Just a single, shiny, disproportionately large tooth.”
At press time, Bazin was revealed to be just a giant hand holding a paintbrush.
