If you tried to think consciously about each motion your hand was making, you'd just produce something stilted." Paul Graham. (Reddit)
Department of Customer Support: The blog has suffered during these last few weeks as I went into studio mode. Hopefully the exhibition, opening a week from Saturday, will justify it. Artblog.net returns to full effect on Monday, with reviews of shows at the MFA. Thank you for your patience.
