Humor in artwork

File0276Above is a caricature drawing by Monte.  The figure on the left is obviously Monte’s brother Jared.  Jared’s nickname was “Mutt” (the story goes, Jared received this nickname because of his height and habit of hanging around a much shorter friend – a long time ago, there was a newspaper cartoon titled “Mutt and Jeff”).  The character with the number 32 on his shirt is a caricature of John “Peachie” Fidler, a long time friend of the Ellis family.  Jared was very fond of baseball and played softball for many years.
