You Don't Even Want To Know What Garrison Keillor Looks Like

Have you noticed that when you listen to a radio personality for years and years, eventually you start to develop a picture of them in your head? Something in their voice influences the way your brain thinks they should look.

Ever notice how that image NEVER looks like the actual person?

I have. But that's because I imagine that all radio personalities are actually talking animals. For instance in my head Terry Gross, host of NPR's "Fresh Air", looks like an otter wearing glasses and a cardigan.

No, I don't know why. Yes, there are others. Yes, I plan to draw them.

  1. "I know what Garrison Keillor looks like! I saw the Prairie Home Companion movie!" -- things radio nerds say. (It is worth watching for a more thoughtful and mature Lyndsey Lohan).

    That's a swell Terry Gross doodle too.
