I have a big backlog of things to share, but I haven’t shown you a portrait in a while and this is only the second time that someone has completed Marilyn Monroe. (The first was the previous week at Boeing which I will share in another posting. This past week I was at OTPP (Ontario Teachers Pension Plan) in Toronto teaching two 2-day Idea Mapping Workshops. They were a great group of learners primarily from the IT areas of the organization. Karen Kalashnik drew most of this in class, then finished at home later that night. Not bad for someone that didn’t think they could draw!

We used some of the same Betty Edwards techniques that Daniel Pink writes about (when he took the 5-day Betty Edwards drawing class) in his book “A Whole New Mind”.
