Evel Knievel


Edie is working on a school project. She chose Evel Knievel as the subject of her independent study. I love her drawing of him in his Captain America suit on his motorcycle. He was actually an interesting guy. He was in and out of jail for minor crimes. Though he did break records and jump some incredible distances, my overall impression of him was of a charismatic guy who created an incredible whirlwind of publicity around himself.

Thanks Sarah. I am going to tell her that you said that. I know it will mean a lot, because some of the boys were making fun of how she drew the motorcycle today. Grrrr.
