NPR personalities in the mind of a cartoonist

December 7, 2011

A quick break from health care to geek out about public radio.  Last year, I posted a slide show of public radio personalities and their celebrity look-a-likes. Following a similar theme, here’s how artist Gaelan Kelly sees them in his mind-

The images were so popular he drew more. Here’s part two-

I always imagined Terry Gross with long dark hair and big earrings. Gaelan Kelly’s drawing is actually closer to the truthKai Ryssdal and Ira Glass are pretty good too.

We’re nowhere near as famous as these public radio folks, but periodically folks tell me what they think the folks at Rhode Island Public Radio look like. At a party a few years ago, I met a doctor who said he expected me to be much older and look like Meryl Streep.  One listener told Ian Donnis he expected him to be a very big man. “I mean big,” he said, “like Jabba the Hutt.”

What do YOU think we look like? Send in your descriptions or drawings and I’ll post them here on the blog. No taking a peak at our profiles!  If you already know us, do you imagine a different person when you hear us on the radio? Or do you remember what you thought we looked like? Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
