Nothing like two days at the Veteran's Affairs Hospital in Palo Alto to make you think of dynamic wrinkles. No, not all the WWII and Korean War vets puttering about. I had to take my husband into the ER there and the VA put me up overnight, but it left me with hours and hours and hours AND HOURS to do nothing but sketch. The only embarrassing part was trying to find a pencil sharpener in that ginormous complex. Information didn't have one. Security didn't have one. They sent me into the ER, and made me wander around the nurses station to find one. That just felt wrong, somehow. I mean, yeah, I needed the pencils sharpened, but it wasn't an *emergency*.
Anyway, long story short, John is feeling much better now and I got to practice stuff I learned from Burne Hogarth's Dynamic Wrinkles book ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FDynamic-Wrinkles-Drapery-Solutions-Practical%2Fdp%2F0823015874&tag=thepikerpress-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325 ). Burne Hogarth used to draw the Tarzan comics a bazillion years ago. I never read his comic, but I'm impressed with his art.
