Upload a drawing of ONE character, where the arms and legs don’t overlap the body (see examples below).

CHECKLIST

  • Make sure the character is drawn on a white piece of paper without lines, wrinkles, or tears.
  • Make sure the drawing is well lit. To minimize shadows, hold the camera further away and zoom in on the drawing.

Gardening 101: Button Fern via Gardenista [Shared]

By Douglas E. Welch on Jul 13, 2022 02:08 pm

I am not a big houseplant fan. I prefer my plants outdoors where I can be messy when watering and performing other maintenance. (SMILE) That said, here is an in-depth look at one houseplant that might fit your needs – and perhaps mine. – Douglas

Lately I’ve been in the market for a houseplant to add some life to my small apartment bathroom.

How to improve your handwriting – Austin Kleon

How to improve your handwriting via Austin Kleon [Shared]

I love, love, love signing books. I’m used to people saying, “I wish I could draw,” but there have been a surprising number of folks on this tour who remark on my handwriting. Sometimes people just like it, and sometimes people are really surprised that it’s the same handwriting that’s in the book. (A lot of people think that the writing in the book is a font.)

The underlying notion here is that handwriting is somehow magical, that you’re just naturally gifted with lovely penmanship. But as I explain to folks on tour, just as I learned to draw by copying Garfield cartoons, I learned to write by copying other people’s handwriting.

My first two handwriting heroes were Phil Collins and John Lennon:
