Pulchritudinous penmanship

“1860 Warsaw 1? by Zeva Oelbaum, 2006

We posted a lovely gallery today at Nextbook.org: yeshiva students’ scribblings on their textbooks’ endpapers, photographed by Zeva Oelbaum: Biblical Marginalia. Click the “View Gallery” link under Eve M. Kahn’s byline to see the slideshow.

I guess they didn’t have that rule that one of my schools did, which if I recall correctly was that if you marked up your school-issued textbook, you had to pay for a new one.

Start sharpening your pencils!

Ceci n’est pas un oignon

Only two weeks to go until DrawMo! 2007, the project wherein interested parties try to make at least one drawing a day for the month of November. A dozen brave sketchers joined me on the group blog last fall, and I know that several others followed along at Flickr, on their own blogs, or (gasp) offline.

You, too, can draw more during DrawMo!

You do not have to participate publicly; it’s just more fun that way. To join the group blog, send me an e-mail or leave a comment over there. You can also join the Flickr group.

Become a Drawmonaut today!
