Quite the Learning Experience
I'm hard at work at my second set of costume illustrations. I have to admit, I'm learning a bunch in the process. No, not the ho-hum costuming stuff, but weird little bits of trivia and whatnot. Based on the notes I got from the director, I've had to do some reading on Mark Twain, learned the history of Colonel Sanders, the WPA, and was introduced to a word I'd never heard before: zaftig. All of this just because of some silly costumes! My horizons are getting broader -- as is my waistline with all of these midnight oil cookies I tend to eat. Dammit!
