For those of you that were inspired by the recent talk about pencils, a new series of online columns debuted today at the New York Times. Artist and illustrator James McMullan will be writing a twelve part series called Line by Line on the basics of drawing. He will be covering everything from drawing a line to mastering perspective, complete with exercises and examples from art history. It looks like a really neat series and I’m really looking forward to it. So if you are wondering what to do with your new pencil, or just like drawing, head on over and take a look.

In the meantime here’s a squid:

Figure 1. A squid.

  1. Awesome! What a great coincidence, the same week I got a set of pencils as a present! I’ll be following closely….
