After Dinner, After Drinks
In my workshops I've encountered a lot of students who have trouble with drawing. The first thing I recommend is reading Drawing On the Right Side of the Brain, and then (this may be even more important) I suggest buying a sketchbook and drawing every chance they get. When I was in college I carried one at all times, and drew whenever I had even just a few minutes of free time. Often, when there was nothing else, I drew my hand (always my left for some strange reason). The hand is great because you can hold it at all kinds of funky, challenging angles, and yet it must still be recognizable. I guarantee those hand drawings of mine helped me with this fork!
