[HERR VON BLOTTZ ARTIST]
Mr. Bunion: Herr Von Blottz Artist. yes. This is the place, I'll go up stairs and see what he wants of me.
Mr. Bunion: I came in answer to your letter.
Mr. Blottz: yes, I wanted to see if you would pose for me. I'd like to make a study of you if you are willing, Mr. Bunion!
Mr. Bunion: Now is this all right?
Mr. Blottz: Fine! Fine! Just strike your natural pose! Just look like you always do that is fine! Um!
Mr. Bunion: You are not particular about subjects?
Mr. Blottz: Oh! Yes! I like to paint every day people. I'm a realist not an idealist. You know.--
Mr. Bunion: There is nothing ideal about me!
Mr. Blottz: Now. If I can get that certain thing about your expression. That look. That something you have that I must get!
Mr. Bunion: That's the best picture of me I ever saw, sir!
Mr. Blottz: I think I have your character pretty good. yes. I think I have you down pat, Mr. Bunion!
Mr. Bunion: Well, I must look at my diary. It isn't much to look at--it is just size weeks ago that I posed for that artist. Oh, well! I'll read something else. I'll read the daily paper..and lie down.
Mr. Bunion: What's this.__ Herr Von Blottz's mural painting "Despair" has been chosen by the Art Committee to place in the New Penitentiary. It will occupy the space over the main entrance to the execution chamber. Speaks well for Blottz as hundreds of artists competed.
