I am an art instructor living and teaching in SE Florida.
I teach a method of drawing that encourages my students to develop subtle shading skills. As an inducement to stimulate more enthusiasm in one of my classes, I suggested drawing a portrait of Ellen. It became so popular, the lesson is now available in its own tutorial workbook.
The method is called "Photo Transfer, Trace and Shade". It's an effective way of teaching drawing by eye, subtle and soft shading techniques, composition and the use of different graphic tools.

Pulling myself out of the darkest part of my life, the lost of my hero - my father, I picked myself up and decided that no matter the challenge, I would succeed and make him proud. So I set myself a goal; to become a published author. I realised my goal this year when 'The Streets of Whitechapel' was published!
I've now set my next goal; The Best Sellers List. This is where Ellen comes! I noticed she interviews...

Helllloooooo Ellen! I work with an older gentlemen who does a lot of volunteer work and loves to make people laugh by writing jokes. He's been sending jokes to you for almost a year. His name is Jim R. and he lives in PA. Is there a way to acknowledge his "special" efforts.
