Police Sketch Artist : The Answers

-By Dan dos Santos

On Saturday, I shared with you the results of a drawing game we made up called 'Police Sketch Artist'. Several people took a stab at guessing who the celebrities were, and many were very close! Below are the answers.

Congrats to our reader, JRBarker, who managed to guess 6 of them correctly!

    1. I would list them if I could remember. But drinks were flowing and there were a LOT of people drawing. This is only half of what we drew.
      The only ones I remember for certain are:
      1. Rebecca Yanovskaya
      4. Travis Lewis
      7. Dan dos Santos
      8. Winona Nelson
      9. Don Maitz
      10, Lauren Cannon

  7. Neither here nor there on the topic, but one fascinating thing I picked up from a radio interview with a police sketch artist was that their real skill lies in helping a witness tap into details which had slipped below their conscious recollection.

    1. Kinda scary to consider that our subconscious records all that we witness, huh?
      No 18 min. gaps in the collective unconscious (Sorry, Gen Xers; Boomer Ref).
