Stuart Immonen, do you have tips for increasing drawing speed? what helped you get faster?
I’ve always drawn at least a page a day; I don’t know if it’s something that can be taught or learned, but if you do something— anything— thousands of times, you’re probably going to get better at it.
I hesitate at giving advice; people who have a real desire to know how are probably already doing it, and the effort is wasted on the rest. I can only tell you what I do; maybe it’ll work for you, maybe not:
-start early and end early.
-work some every day, even if it’s just thinking critically about it.
-know when to power through and when to pull the plug. Avoid attachment.
-ten minutes for lunch,tops
-be observant; then interpret
-cheat; use the work of others to improve your own. The Art Police will not come knocking and eventually you will learn how on your own.

”I’m interested in this lunch that takes 10 minutes to prepare and consume.”
This is why I don’t like to give advice. It’s called a sandwich.

No work today. Kind of at a loss as to what to do with myself until my girlfriend gets back from counselling.
I’ve ended up watching a Frasier double bill and now I’m watching Due South and I briefly had a moment of profound existential panic because I thought it was 1995.
That reminds me, I have the Due South box set here. I mean I moved to Canada, I HAD to buy it.
I still need to buy me a wolfdog. I totally saw a guy on the streetcar with one a while back.
