Intimate Gathering

A "gathering"...which reminds me: visit my page at Gather if you'll find some art, some family pics, and some annoying limericks in no particular order.

Mysterious Footprints

Pattillo arrives at the pond to find mysterious footprints.

This drawing is from a second tale concerning Pattillo Armadillo which I've yet to with the first Pattillo adventure, sometimes the art is the first to occur.

To see more images of Pattillo from 1996 go here and from 2005 go here. Patt would like to see you too!

The Grolier Club of New York

"Do not fail to draw something every day, for no matter how little it is, it will be well worth while, and it will do you a world of good." Cennino Cennini (1370-1440)

In artist Robert Genn's Newsletter (see icon link this page) this week we read of an exhibition at New York's Grolier Club, Teaching America to Draw. Show reviewer Michael Kimmelman reminds us that,

"Drawing used to be a civilized thing to do, like reading and writing. It was taught in elementary schools. It was democratic. It was a boon to happiness."

Elementary schools certainly emphasized drawing when I was a whippersnapper--and it was my favorite thing to do. I love Digital Art--it's amazing, but let's not throw away our pencils and pens just yet!

Founded in 1884 The Grolier Club is for bibliophiles and graphic arts enthusiasts. Named for the great French bibliophile Jean Grolier (1489/90-1565), it may be worth some clicks in 2006!
