Bente Starcke King is so very generous with her instruction…I wish I could take a workshop from her. This sweet illustration of a small studio set-up is from her book “Beautiful Botanicals: Painting and Drawing Flowers and Plants”
Move over, Walter White. Five men have been extradited to the U.S. from Thailand for their alleged participation in a drug trafficking ring involving the import of crystal meth produced in North Korea, a militarized nation that is one of the most reclusive in the world.
The men were arrested last September after they allegedly promised North Korean-made methamphetamines to undercover agents of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to be imported into the United States. Federal authorities reported Tuesday that they were to be extradited.
Two of the men, who officials say were members of a Hong Kong-based criminal organization, allegedly sold more than 66 pounds of meth produced in North Korea in 2012.

Reblogging because I admire court sketchers
I just cut a hole out of tracing paper, and I lay it over a printout of a photo I shot to see if I can find a good composition for a drawing. Sometimes I get lucky
This is a view finder I just made to study possible compositions from the reference photos I take
Sketch from reference photo, drawing from sketch. Oil pastels

Pablo Picasso in Giovanni Papini’s novel Il Libro Nero (1951).
(one of the more interesting stories surrounding this quote, other than the myth about Picasso having said it, is that the ex-Fascist Papini was urged by NATO to publish the Picasso section of Il Libro Nero as a genuine interview in order to undercut Picasso’s credibility. Picasso being an unrepentant communist.)
