Artist Tip #5 – How to Package Aunt Wilma’s Christmas Gift
Remember that eyeball you tore out? I bet you saved it! Go now and get your Aunt Wilma caricature with red rose collage and wrap it in red paper. Tie this with green ribbon.

Aunt Wilma will love it.

Now that Aunt Wilma is flaming angry because you caricatured her face and ripped out one of her eyeballs paste a pretty paper red rose in place of the missing wrinkled third eyeball that you previously created from one unsightly pen line.

Artists Tip #3 – How to hide that unsightly pen line
When you’ve drawn a line and it’s bad because you smudged it, drew the line too long, too short, gave aunt Wilma an extra eyeball or twitched from being startled from your rhythm by said aunt Wilma simply give her another eyeball.
