Risa Horowitz came over yesterday for a cookie and a try a the camera lucida or "neolucida". It takes a while for you to train your eye to see the image correctly, but once you do it becomes a cool and mystifying tool. She drew me (sideways in red with a bit of the counter from another drawing impacting with my head). She shares my inability to really draw but attraction to tracing and cheating in other ways. Yay for shortcuts!
