Colin Burrow: The End of the Epithet - The Odyssey is much harder to translate than The Iliad. One person?s interpolation or historical curiosity will be another person?s moment of deep psychological insight. That problem is compounded by the subject matter and social world of the poem. It is full of travellers and strangers who might be gods, or con men, or, like much enduring godly Odysseus of the many wiles himself, a little bit of both. So no one ever quite knows what?s going on. A swineherd might turn out to be an abducted prince. A Cyclops might greet a stranger who addresses it politely by bashing the brains out of one of his companions as if he were a puppy. A good king might politely offer a wary welcome and food, listen to a stranger?s story, and then after a tactful delay ask who he is and where he is from. And then the guest might lie....

Adewale Maja-Pearce: After Boko Haram - The scene was set for the rise of an extreme sectarian movement. There would be no shortage of foot soldiers: Comolli points out that with a population approaching 200 million, Nigeria has ?the highest number of non-attending schoolchildren in the world?: 10.5 million in 2010, the last year for which figures are available. Most are concentrated in the north, where ?70 per cent of the population is illiterate.? All that was needed was an eloquent figure who could applaud the governors? embrace of sharia while pointing out that they fell far short of the code of conduct they favoured....

Isabel Hull: When can you start a war? - Oona Hathaway and Scott Shapiro?s point is that ?for all its problems, the New World Order is better than the Old.? Theirs is a valuable reminder that law matters and that international co-operation is not a utopia, but a functioning reality. Recently, it has been hard to hear that truth above the din produced by bad actors, like Putin and Trump, and by criticism of the neoliberal order from the left and the populist right, which obscures the positive effects of internationalism. What?s more, we take for granted a world in which the assumption is that countries will not engage in war....

Drawing - Top 10 Mistakes Beginners Make - Looking critically at your work can be very difficult for a beginner. Part of learning to draw is learning to see, and you can't identify a problem if you can't see it in the first place. So it can be hard to spot where you need to improve. You've also got every right to feel proud of each step along the way - we can be too hard on ourselves, especially if well-intended criticism dents our sense of achievement when we've worked hard on a piece. Remember that just because a drawing isn't perfect, doesn't mean that it isn't good - its possible to pick 'flaws' in even some very great artworks. Learning to assess your work with a realistic eye can help you make major strides forward. This article on the Top Ten Mistakes Beginners Make in drawing points out the major problem areas and suggests how to fix them. ...

Now What? Developing your art beyond technique. - Twenty years after art school, it's still possible to come across tips that are really quite 'basic' but that you haven't encountered before. We've always got room to improve, technically. But being an artist isn't just about technique, of course. We all know that, but sometimes in our quest for excellence, it's easy to forget. So what is basic technical mastery? Knowing your technical ability is pretty straightforward. You know if you have a solid understanding of perspective. You can sketch something from life or imagination in a pretty good approximation of one or two point perspective. When drawing the figure, you aren't daunted by foreshortened limbs, and you are able to fit the whole figure on the page, with accurate proportions. Your drawings use a good range of tonal value. Your darks are really dark, and you aren't afraid to use black. You use highlights appropriately and can get a good range of middle values out of your pencil or charcoal. If you choose to use a high...

Inspiration Boards - Have you ever made an inspiration board, vision board or mood board? The basic idea is to assemble inspiring images, texts and even objects - though each type of board has a slightly different intention. Chances are you already have a pinboard or wall where you're collecting your favorite images - most artists do! The deliberately constructed board just brings a level of intention to the creation of the pinboard or collage. Why not try assembling your own focused inspiration board to focus your creative ideas, motivate you, or share your vision. Make a Mood or Vision Board. Image: detail from (cc) by Suzy Spence While looking for good examples of vision boards, I discovered ...

A Fresh Canvas - "There are some things one can only achieve by a deliberate leap in the opposite direction." - Franz Kafka After 12 years writing and drawing the About.com Drawing/Sketching site, it's time for me to turn over a new leaf. To start a whole new book, in fact. So thank you, dear readers, for your company and kind words. It's been an honor to share your creative journeys. I'd especially like to thank Forum moderator and website contributor Susan Tschantz, who has been an enduring rock, part of Drawing/Sketching from before I started writing the site.

My Favorite Drawing Lessons - In 12 years of writing About Drawing/Sketching, I've created a lot of lessons, tutorials, reviews and blog entries. As I wrap up my time here at About.com, I wanted to take a look back at a few of my favorites. First are my 'greenie' posts.

What's Your Artistic Brand? - A toy sale catalogue arrived in our mailbox today, an I was struck by how everything is branded. You can't just buy a truck - you buy a Transformer. Hannah Montana beams out from kits of craft supplies and Dora the Explorer has her own toy video projector. Everything has some well-known face enhancing its desirability. Commercialism was even rearing its ugly head at the Sydney Aquarium, with 'Spongebob Squarepants' characters decorating the majority of the exhibits. The problem is, however much we hate it - and most artists I know loathe marketing and would rather perish in obscurity than advertise - creating a viable career in the arts requires that you have a personal brand. This doesn't mean plastering a ritzy logo and flamboyant signature across ever piece you do. It means having consistency of style, a certain unity in your body of work, and something that sets it apart from the crowd. For most visual artists, this tends to happen organically. When your art is internal...

Should You Go To Art School - One comment or question that I often hear from readers is, "My friends say I'm a good artist. Do you think I should go to art school?" That's a huge question, and one I can't answer for you. Whether your friends are right or not, whether you are a good artist or not almost doesn't matter - art skills can be learned. If you can hold a pencil, you can learn to draw. The question is whether you have the mind and heart of an artist, and only you can know that. Here are a few things to think about in the process of deciding whether you should Go To Art School Related Posts: Is Art Your Life's Work? ...
