I finally downloaded Firefox for my computer so I can type sentences with words that are bold or italic. Call me a goober but I'm excited. Anything that helps me be more clear.
I can also embed liks that work. Here is a tribute to Vance Gerry written by John Musker.
Here are some great simple drawing instructions from Vance himself...I think. Some of my current or former workmates might be able to tell us for sure. The cursive writing and drawing style lead me to believe it might be Joe Grant instead. In any case, this one is on "scale", a concept I never even thought about until I saw this handout. It's a hard thing to explain. If it's not clear to you, ask questions and I will try to clarify!
These last two are copies of R. Crumb's work to show his use of scale. Whoever copied them wrote "ugly but has great scale" on them. That's an amazing way to look at them. I think Crumb is an example of a great draftsman who's drawings aren't very appealing to me. Obviously, that's a personal opinion, it's a very subjective call. Someday I want to post a lot of drawings from artists that I think draw well but are unappealing. It would be great to start a discussion and see what everyone else thinks! It will be very controversial though, I am sure.
