Drawing On The Write Side of The Brain

September 29, 2010
NIcer out in the mornings. Went for a walk with Peaches at seven. Not bad. Ridiculous heat in LA—113!. Deena called and said she woke up in a puddle of sweat. She has no AC.

Head's too big but, as they say, a good drawing should be like handwriting. You should be able to tell who drew it by the distortion. This is the problem with using tracing paper and opaque projectors. You may be getting better anatomical proportions, but it so often results in art that looks dead, or machine-like, which, in fact it is.
