Datebook 2-16 thru 23
"The wisest men follow their own direction." —Euripides (484-406 B.C.)
EDM #18: The view from my office (at least part of it). It also inspired a Nanism: Seeing the sky in the city is very often a matter for reflection. I know, I apologize. I just couldn't resist.
"I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult." —Rita Rudner
Because why wouldn't I draw a poodle?
"They say such nice things about people at their funerals that it makes me sad that I'm going to miss mine by just a few days." —Garrison Keillor
One of my Uncle Pete's stained glasses. This was an early trial piece of his. I have another hanging above the sink in my kitchen.
"When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves." —Confucius (551-479 B.C.)
"To find a fault is easy, to do better may be difficult." —Plutarch (46-120 A.D.)
I won't tell you who I was trying to sketch on the 16th, the results are terrible. I suppose we'll just have to scratch it up to practice.
