Coffee Mugs™

It is difficult to accept the fact that we see everything upside-down. ...all due to the refraction of light through the convex lens of our eyeballs.  Our brain takes the capsized image and rearranges it so it matches the tactile sensation of our environment.

...you'll find however, that far more honest drawings can be had when rendered inverted...

Coffee Mugs™

       It's time to come clean!
Peanuts are not nuts, they're legumes
Walnuts are not nuts, they're seeds.
Sunflower seeds are not seeds, they're kernels
Black-Eyed Peas are not peas, they're beans.
Coffee is not a bean, it's a seed.

I'm not crazy. I'm a nut.

Many, many skull novices assume the teeth are part of the bones of the skull.
They are not.
Nor is the skull one big blunt tooth.

I'm glad to be able to help here.

Coffee Mugs™

Dogs taste salty.
And cats don't taste sweet.
...and neither seem much interested in coffee.


I have to return to my drawing now.

House flies poop every two minutes or so.  Some believe they poop every time they land as their liquid diet runs speedily through their short digestive track.
Still want to eat that doughnut that's been sitting on the counter all day?

I have to get back to my drawing now.

Coffee Mugs™

When objects are wet they absorb more light.  Hence there is less light to be reflected back to your eyes --making the wet object appear darker.
This thankfully goes some distance in explaining why coffee is so dark.

Coffee Mugs™

There is no funny bone.
There is, however, an ulnar nerve that threads through your elbow (which isn't protected well by bone or muscle) that graces you (when you bang the inside of your elbow while bending your arm) with an uncomfortable spasm that shoots all the way down to your pinky and ring finger.  
There is nothing funny about this feeling.
What's so funny then?
I guess to the sadistic it's funny to see a victim of the spasm jump around and cuss.
Sadistic people are a funny sort.

Graphite conducts electricity.  This is in part why I draw these Coffee Mugs™ directly in ink without preliminary pencil sketches.  
It's too dangerous!

A challenging task when drawing faces is to identify and convey the facial differences amongst yawning, singing, yelling and crying.  The resulting expressions are similar but there are differences to be had...
