OK - so the main guy in this show is one of those "I tried to get out but they keep pulling me back in" types.
You know how I know? Because (aside from telling us as much) the writers also show him drawing a picture! So, clearly he's going to make it all 10 blocks from Hell's Kitchen to the Museum of Modern Art.
The best part is that being able to draw has roughly as much to do with being an artist as knowing how to spell has with being a writer.
*Nice = shitty, in this case.
