The Art of Paying Attention

Wendy is a national treasure. So much of what she taps into in this TED Talk I can confirm based on my own experiences drawing and making things. Most of all though, we should all slow down and spend time looking to really see. Each of us, and the world would be infinitely better for it.

I had the opportunity to do a little contour drawing this past week (the exercise Wendy drops onto the unsuspecting audience in the video) and was reminded that it’s great fun with ever-delightful and unexpected results.
