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?
