Tina Steele Lindsey on Drawing Leslie Neilsen




Tina Steele Lindsey

I always considered the perfect neighborhood as one filled with comedians to keep things lively. 
Leslie Neilsen would have to live in that neighborhood, not a week goes by I don't say, "~and don't call me Shirley."    I was thinking about Leslie Neilsen today and knew I just had to draw him. Laughter is the best medicine.Thank you, Leslie, for your good medicine.

Wonderful tribute to one of my favorite movie icons. I loved watching his old movies when he played the serious leading man in his then dark hair. He really did hit his stride with Naked Gun.

Sheila, thank you for your good words. I love photos of Leslie with the dark hair, he was a serious actor, and then threw up his arms and did comedy. I am so glad he did, and do appreciate he did both so well. Thanks for your comment.
