If I had a Hall of Shame for astronaut portraits instead of signatures this would have to be the star exhibit:

I mean, honestly, is there any way you would recognise who that is supposed to be without the text underneath?

I agree. If the person was not identified, it would pretty much be "Joe Astronaut."

I mean, it's not a bad drawing. It just doesn't look like the person it is meant to be.

I've found another entry for the "Worst Armstrong Portrait" competition...

Unless of course his Apollo 11 PPK was actually chock-full of blusher and lipstick...

The first one looks like "Woody" more than Buzz, the second one looks like what would happen if Neil and Michael Jackson ever had a child, Yikes!!
