Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation, for your character is what you are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
— Dale Carnegie

You have not heard from me in awhile as I caught three successive stiff necks in a row… so instead of dashing into my car and going places, I have been practicing the art of drawing faces and I have improved “because” my faces now have definite emotions and characteristics (in my point of view of course). It is funny that as I am drawing more and more, I realize that I am holding my pen in a different way that when I first started. At first I was holding my fountain pen very close and tightly to the nib, and now I am holding my fountain pen almost at its tip (opposite to the nib)… and this gives an instantaneous freedom in the sketches. Try it and let me know! Hold your pen or pencil or foutain pen by its tail… and see what it gives you -)))
