Gavin Francis: The Spanish Flu - It is estimated that five hundred million people contracted it, and that between fifty and a hundred million of them died. Asians were thirty times more likely to die than Europeans. The pandemic had some influence on the lives of everyone alive today. Donald Trump?s grandfather Friedrich died from it in New York City. He was 49. His early death meant that his fortune passed to his son Fred, who used it to start a New York property empire....

Colin Kidd: About Last Year - Postmodern Britain lies well beyond Orwell?s imagining, a country where superannuated teenagers in certain walks of middle-class life, including journalism and politics, stay in a condition of more or less permanent adolescence from puberty to retirement. Surely it?s time for the authentically middle-aged ? we know who we are: square, clapped out, disillusioned and cardiganed ? to take charge before the inheritance is squandered?...

Lorna Finlayson: Can the law be feminist? - The difference between Catharine MacKinnon and a typical pro-war American feminist is that MacKinnon has a far bleaker view of the condition of women in Western countries. As she sees it, they need more than top-level representation ? in the form of a female president, for example ? to perfect their equality. They are systemically brutalised in a society that refuses even to recognise what is going on. This raises the question of whether America,...

T.J. Clark: Cezanne?s Portraits - Hands, in this world without faces, do an enormous amount of work. They are a fulcrum for the bodies ? the ?persons? ? they belong to: around them the body opens, exfoliates, puts on show its basic structure, displays its duality (following the hands left and right) or its multiplicity (since the hands themselves lose edges, flip from concave to convex and back, clench, disintegrate, weigh a ton, unfold into corrugations or diamond facets). They ...

Drawing - Top 10 Mistakes Beginners Make - Looking critically at your work can be very difficult for a beginner. Part of learning to draw is learning to see, and you can't identify a problem if you can't see it in the first place. So it can be hard to spot where you need to improve. You've also got every right to feel proud of each step along the way - we can be too hard on ourselves, especially if well-intended criticism dents our sense of achievement when we've worked hard on a piece. ...

Now What? Developing your art beyond technique. - Twenty years after art school, it's still possible to come across tips that are really quite 'basic' but that you haven't encountered before. We've always got room to improve, technically. But being an artist isn't just about technique, of course. We all know that, but sometimes in our quest for excellence, it's easy to forget. So what is basic technical mastery? Knowing your technical ability is pretty straightforward. You know if you have a s...

Inspiration Boards - Have you ever made an inspiration board, vision board or mood board? The basic idea is to assemble inspiring images, texts and even objects - though each type of board has a slightly different intention. Chances are you already have a pinboard or wall where you're collecting your favorite images - most artists do! The deliberately constructed board just brings a level of intention to the creation of the pinboard or collage. Why not try assembling...

A Fresh Canvas - "There are some things one can only achieve by a deliberate leap in the opposite direction." - Franz Kafka After 12 years writing and drawing the About.com Drawing/Sketching site, it's time for me to turn over a new leaf. To start a whole new book, in fact. So thank you, dear readers, for your company and kind words. It's been an honor to share your creative journeys. I'd especially like to thank Forum moderator and website contributor Susan Tsch...

My Favorite Drawing Lessons - In 12 years of writing About Drawing/Sketching, I've created a lot of lessons, tutorials, reviews and blog entries. As I wrap up my time here at About.com, I wanted to take a look back at a few of my favorites. First are my 'greenie' posts. Going forward, I hope to make environmental activism a much bigger part of my life, and some seeds are sown here. Going Green Sable Brushes Paper and the Artist's Footprint Sharing technique has been one of m...

How to Draw Hearts - The foundation of a really nice looking heart is symmetry and balance - good proportion so that your heart looks rounded and even. From there, you can 'tweak' the shape to create an expressive form, or stick with the clean traditional style. Here's How to Draw a Heart and How to Draw an Arrow Through a Heart. How to Draw Hearts originally appeared on About.com Drawing / ...

What's Your Artistic Brand? - A toy sale catalogue arrived in our mailbox today, an I was struck by how everything is branded. You can't just buy a truck - you buy a Transformer. Hannah Montana beams out from kits of craft supplies and Dora the Explorer has her own toy video projector. Everything has some well-known face enhancing its desirability. Commercialism was even rearing its ugly head at the Sydney Aquarium, with 'Spongebob Squarepants' characters decorating the major...

Should You Go To Art School - One comment or question that I often hear from readers is, "My friends say I'm a good artist. Do you think I should go to art school?" That's a huge question, and one I can't answer for you. Whether your friends are right or not, whether you are a good artist or not almost doesn't matter - art skills can be learned. If you can hold a pencil, you can learn to draw. The question is whether you have the mind and heart of an artist, and only you can ...
