michael-panebianco-anthony-hopkinsIn my 2-day courses titled “Idea Mapping: A Learning Workshop“, participants are taught a learning model and then apply that model to learning a variety of new skills. Drawing a portrait of a human face is one of those skills. For more on the purpose of this activity see the June 27,2007 posting where I share the first portrait drawing. Search this blog for “portrait drawing” to see more.

Michael Panebianco, a captain at Southwest Airlines, attended a workshop in December 2007. This self-proclaimed nonartist drew this beautiful portrait of Anthony Hopkins, and was kind enough to share it. Mike has also contributed several idea maps to this blog around aviation emergency procedures in the September 4 and September 6, 2007 postings.
