Quote of the Day
Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing.
Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.
I was quiet, a loner. I was one of those children where, if you put me in a room and gave me some crayons and a pencils, you wouldn't hear from me for nine straight hours. And I was always drawing racing cars and rockets and spaceships and planes, things that were very fast that would take me away.
Mickey Mouse popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad 20 years ago on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.
In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing.
Vincent Van Gogh

Ulysses S. Grant
Pure drawing is an abstraction. Drawing and colour are not distinct, everything in nature is coloured.
Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Human beings have a lot of problems identifying themselves with other human beings who don't resemble them exactly. But there's something about drawing that means that anyone can identify to a drawing. I mean, people can identify themselves with Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse.
I'm not materialistic. I believe in presents from the heart, like a drawing that a child does.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
Leonardo da Vinci
