They say that you've truly made it when some artist decides to create a caricature of you.

I had my caricature drawn when I was a kid, and when I saw it I cried, thinking I must really look like that! I was going through that "awkward stage" anyhow, and thought "wow its even far more obvious than I thought!"

That's actually a very good one too. I've seen some of celebs that are truly over the top.

Good observation Joveski!

Plus...what is his left hand doing up there in no - mans land?

It's not that Gord in incapable of playing different inversions up the neck....it's simply that he doesn't!

But seriously - I think that this drawing is kinda cool to look at; especially for longtime followers who know his "eras."
I would place this in time post "East of Midnight....but pre "Painter.:

That caricature obviously copied to the flickr site was I suspect originally from the Wall Street Journal article
"Gordon Lightfoot's Surprised to Be Here" at:-
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB117806495882088858.html
as repeated all over the place including Valerie's site and on a blog at:-
http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/017569.php
which continues on http://www.captainsquartersblog.com/...ves/009909.php
Apologies if these links have been posted here before
Anyway the WSJ article was basically about Johnny Corcoran,(who many of us have met and sometimes enjoyed his generosity after a concert in the form of Pizza pies) as I was trying to say that caricature is reminiscent of another one
that I once found in a google image search;I cannot now remember where,only that I saved it to my hard drive as
lightfootweb-characature.jpg (bad spelling)

That'll make a great cover for his next album.
