I have a young friend who likes to draw dragons. I like to draw dragons too, so sometimes we get together and compare notes. We both agree that the three-quarter view of the snout is the most difficult part to get right—especially if the beast won’t sit still. Drawing is like a muscle: exercise it and it will get stronger. The more difficult thing, I think, is to keep open the access to the child’s eye—that vision which accepts glimpses of the invisible as ordinary.
