OriginEdit

Al Hirschfeld was an American caricaturist best known for his black and white portraits of celebrities and Broadway stars. He also drew many politicians, television actors and musicians. Hirschfield would hide Nina, his daughter’s name, in every work he could after her birth. The overwhelming support for his hidden motif gave him reason to continue the gag. Many saw Hirschfeld’s works just to count the Ninas.

The chair and lamp were replaced with replicas at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. A desk was also present and was taken as well, “just in case”.

EffectsEdit

The chair and lamp will turn the user into a caricature of themselves. They can look like either a simple drawing or a life-like, yet exaggerated version of themselves. When in this state, the user will see the name Nina hidden everywhere they look.
