As the “blog master” at my day job, I’ve been enjoying contributing illustrations for posts as well as getting them edited and published. I drew the ladder and level for a two-part post about helping English as a Second Language students improve their reading. The ladders and levels used in the posts were metaphorical. (If you’re interested here are Part 1 and Part 2).
The level in the picture above is a small plastic one that I have in the studio. It’s actually an offensive Day-Glo green so I used a different green for the sketch. I keep the level on my easel to make sure a canvas is straight before I start painting.
