Crack Skull Bob:
Common Drawing Mistakes, No. 37

Sometimes we library folk need to borrow some comic relief from an outside source.

One of my favorite outside sources is Ruben Fletcher. His blog, Crack Skull Bob, is full of excellent sketches, and often his commentary is full of ironic humor.

Rubin has a sub-category of posts which he calls "Common Mistakes." It's a sort of advice-for-artists category with a surrealistic twist.

Here's my current favorite, with a spippet of the commentary:

Common Drawing Mistakes, No. 37, by Crack Skull Bob

You're drawing up a storm, in a crosshatching groove, and suddenly the whole thing comes down on you. It happens to experienced sketchers as well as novices....

Proper attention to drawing construction is what will prevent this tragedy from occurring. Add too much hatching to a flimsy structure, and you're just begging for trouble.
I love it.

BTW, this one is a stitch. Sort of reminds me of me a year or so ago.
