Here's A Tip

The line for Vicky's caricatures was 12 people deep and growing. No one knew exactly why her caricature sketches took so long. She drew quickly, but seemed to be a perfectionist. She did two sketches of everyone in line, claiming that the first one was "wrong." No one could see any flaws, but they waited patiently just the same because her sketches were so good.

Vicky's dirty little secret was simple. She always did two sketches of each person -- one for them and one for her. If a customer passed by her tip jar without adding a gift, she turned in her sketch to the police. She called these her artist composites and labeled each "Thief!"
