Learning Drawing Skills To Help You Communicate

I sigh with despair every time I see yet another drawing by Julia Evans.

All of it is clever, clear and without effort on my part, beyond me.

Yeah, it’s the “without effort on my part” that keeps me from learning basic drawing skills.

You’re never going to say of a drawing by me, “There’s a proper Julia Evans!” but I don’t think basic drawing skills beyond me, provided I take the time to practice.

How expensive are guidebooks? Does free sound OK?

By E.G. Lutz, What to Draw and How to Draw It (1913), Drawing Made Easy (1935).

BTW, Lutz inspired Walt Disney with: Animated Cartoons: How They Are Made, Their Origin and Development.

I found this at The Public Domain Review. Support for them is always a good idea.

Of course I would rather be exploring nuances of XQuery, but that’s because XQuery is already familiar.

It’s trying the unfamiliar that leads to new skills, hopefully. 😉
