Stan Prokopenkos Blog - StumbleUpon For a video version of this tutorial visit www.proko.com/how-to-draw-ears-anatomy-and-structure In this tutorial I will go over the parts of the ear and suggest an easy way to remember all these complex shapes.

Colored Pencil Sculptures at WomansDay.com - Jennifer Maestre's Extreme Art Piled high on the floor of Michigan-based artist Jennifer Maestre's loft is a giant mound of Loew-Cornell colored pencils, the artist's building supply of choice. She produces beautiful, albeit dangerous-looking, sculptures by meticulously poking each through a screen. Prompted by a contest in art school, Maestre began creating sculptures of sea creatures using nails. "But I couldn’t get a lot of variations of form, or the kind of shapes I wanted," she says.

But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

Who are you to say that they are not, in the face of reality and facts?
