New Thing #337: M C Jenscher
I am not a born fine artist. My doodles of hummingbirds and 3-D boxes and g-clefs that have made their way into many a class (or work) notebook don't count. They're ADORABLE and should totally be in the Museum of Cute... but in this sense they don't count. Tonight, though, with the help of a tutorial, I drew M C Escher's impossible triangle. It was completely a cheat, and I felt a little bad doing in minutes what it took Mr. Escher much longer to achieve, but to create something on paper other than a one-dimensional cartoon character, or my autograph, is kind of an awesome feeling. And it will make my next meeting much more interesting.
