the artist is me!

Today Smith is drawing New York City on one half of his paper and on the other half he's drawing a beach he traveled to for the winter recess.

Smith: This is the water and this is a building and I'm drying off. And this is my mom coming up because she was swimming... Now I'm going to draw the city, but I'm not going to paint it -- but why not?... I'm not going to put a boat on my picture because then people would think I rode in a boat and I did not... This is the Empire State Building. I thought it might be the other building --

Bianca: The Chrysler?

: Yep, but it's too big... I'll draw a plane because I rode an airplane... I'm using an artist to draw because the artist is me!
