Flashback - I Used To Draw

It's been a while since I've done a flashback post.  And since I have a bunch of these cued up and ready to hit go, it's a good one to pull out during tax deadline craziness.  The good news is that I'm over the hump, my big clients are done and I'm feeling a lot less like I'm headed for the loony bin now.  

Normally flashback posts include cute pictures of times gone by.  These are actually pictures of a pastime gone by.  I used to draw...  Mostly for art class in high school, but also some just for fun.   Digging these pieces out from a plastic box under my bed has made me want to try to pick up a pencil or ink pen again and give it another whirl.  Maybe I will...but after the tax deadline.,.

A lesson in pen and ink "stippling", bunches of tiny dots, which turned out to be my favorite method, as you can see below.
For the best effect, blur your eyes or stand back from the drawing,

Miss Marilyn Monroe

Don't ask what happened to his ears.  I don't know.

This is one I did for fun on my own time.  I copied it from the cover of the book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye"
which was all the rage in my teen years.

This lil guy was actually entered into an art contest in Fredericksburg.  I won a savings bond.  Lame.
So those are a few of my best ones from years past.  Bet you didn't know this about me!  To bring back a dumb quote that was also all the rage in my teen years: "My name is Anna and I like to do drawrings."  Anyone? Anyone?  Bethany?  Lara?  Andrew?
