Drawing From The Right Side Of My Brain

TODO: Pull subtitle into page object
The initial self-portrait drawing I made in the Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain course. It's not particularly good in ways that I can't really describe.

With the instructions we'd had, everyone's looked about the same quality. Mine was middle of the pack, but not far from either the best or the worst.

The class proceeded as an exhausting 5 days of concentration, learning, and drawing. The results blew my mind.

Everyone draws another self-portrait on the last day of class. A way to measure progress.

It was amazing.

Drawing From The Right Side Of My Brain

I bought <<link|Drawing On The Right Side Of the Brain|https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005GSYXU4/>> 
sometime in the '90s. Flipped through it a few times. 
Always meant to read it. Never did.

In 2016, the son of the author came to town to teach it as a week 
long course. It was expensive, but the web site showed pretty 
incredible progress for folks who attended. I was half convinced 
they were just picking the best examples, but I had vacation I 
needed to burn and figured it was worth a short. So, I splurged.

It was worth every penny.

After the introduction and some general instruction, everyone 
draws a self-portrait on the first day. Here's mine:
