FabMap Contest Entry with Red Suit and Jewfro

So I dab my wet forehead with my map, then look at it to get around. The song that goes with me strutting around town is horn heavy and moderately funky, so I thought I’d pull my ‘fro back out – especially since I had never entered a contest with ‘fro, but sans mustache. We’ll see how it goes.
