Here is my illustration for this week's illustrationfriday prompt WISE




Gordon Wise


I had Gordon wise for Drawing 1 in my first summer semester in college. His instruction was my first taste of teacher-as-facilitator. I remember drawing--lots of drawing. Armed with a big drawing pad and an 18" ruler, I practiced and practiced. What an appropriate last name for an inspirational figure. I admired his patience, care, and love for fast cars.

I loved the guy too, and have nothing but good to say about my experiences with him. It was a 24" ruler, however...check your supply list :)
