today's post is a masterpiece

no, really.

it's a sample sketch i did for a children's coloring book where they take famous paintings and... uh, turn them into coloring books.

i think the line drawing has only one thing that is different,the eyes of monalisa .i think that was one reason and background was plain

thanks, though i think da vinci might start rolling in his grave at the thought that i got everything right but the eyes... ;)

hello, I am creating a Webquest for my graduate class (having my elementary art students go on a "field trip" to the Art Institute. My WebQuest is about the Elements of Art ..particularly LINE. One of their assignments is to take a masterpiece and recreate it in line. I have been looking for an example and found yours. would you be willing to let me include your "mona" on my WebQuest? I would really appreciate it! thanks , k (a desperate graduate student!)

I have never blogged before. how do I find out your response? I guess I just watch here.....thanks

grad/kat,

i'd be happy to let you use my sketch for your webquest! i also really appreciate your asking my permission when you could've just swiped the image like people usually do.

i don't know what exactly a webquest is, but if it's online could you possible give me the URL?

Woo Hoo!! Thank you so much. I am new to this whole thing. I wondered about "just swiping images", but thought my professor would catch me in a cheat! My WebQuest is due Monday and I will send the URL when I publish it. Again - Thank you !!!!!

i should be the one thanking you-- you're the one putting my stuff to good use. :)

hello mcoy, I finished my WebQuest. This is geared towards my 5th grade art classes (I will have 6 next year). You will find your "mona" on the Process page. It really is a perfect illustration for their assignment. So, are you a graphic artist? I have bought a few coloring books w/masterpieces as the theme. Are you the artist for these maybe? Do you do all freelance? Anyway, I really appreciate you letting me use your drawing! Here is the URL..I hope you enjoy...I have been recommending the link on the Process page that says: Lines, Letters, and Sound...have you heard of Bembo's Zoo? If not, you will love it!
Here is the link to my WebQuest:
