I asked, and Earth is happy for artists to sketch from the photos up on the website if you give attribution. #Earthsworld if you’re on Instagram. Here’s a sketch I […]

I Knew Very Little About Prue Leith Until…

Last December, already a fan of “The Great British Baking Show” I knew very little about the host Prue Leith except her love of wonderfully colorful glasses, wacky jewelry, and her kindness to the bakers.

In Context—More Pep Talks from the Archives

Still organizing scans and papers here. This scan from January contained a note Dick left for me when he went off to work and I was left at home trying to cope with “the Zombie Eye.” (Which is what we call the super large contact lens meant to control the shape of my oddball left […]

Want To See How Roz Sketches and Paints?

The Daily Potato: A Look at a Daily Drawing Project
