Area Man’s Art Still Sucks Despite Depression Diagnosis

PORTLAND, OR — After several unlucky years spent developing his craft, things were finally starting to look up for local painter Chuck Picasso (no relation) after he was diagnosed with clinical depression in April. “All great art comes from suffering,” said the 32-year-old, who at the time had just been laid off from his job as a keychain repairman. “Just as Van Gogh turned his pain into masterpieces, so too will I! Just as soon as my Postmates order gets here.” In the three months since this interview took place, Picasso has entered his studio exactly once, drawing a series of unfinished stick figures before returning to the couch to watch Dragon Ball Z.
