Home Spun comic strip #202
In hindsight, I realize that the problem is she's just like me.
I was trying to teach Marina, then 8 (?), how to draw a self-portrait, but she was so frustrated because she couldn't get it to look like her. In my defense, I thought her drawing was really good for her age and skill level, considering she had only spent a few minutes working on it. To show her how hard it is to draw an accurate likeness that fast, I did a quick line drawing of her face. Of course, I didn't think it looked good, but she did. Like mother, like daughter.
