Creating lessons as posts and linking from a course page. The advantage here is it’s easier to create posts, and you can display in columns and include the “read more” hypertext link. The disadvantage is that if the site ever switches to a “blog” format, these entries will be included in the blog history rather than existing off in their own little side world as child pages of the main course page.

Since I’ve had so much daylight and so many weekends without commitments, the house and yard are looking pretty good.

Rather appropriately, it ended up being a pain in the neck. First, Another Art Project Goes “Splat” - I got a set of nib pens for Christmas in hopes of finally figuring out how to do “proper” inking. Historically, I’ve used fine-tipped markers and tried to recreate the effects of nibs and brushstrokes through “fakery.” Since the object was to concentrate on technique 2020 - I was finally coming to grips with the fact that I’m living in the 21st (!) century and now here we are in the previously inconceivable year of 2020. I mean seriously, doesn’t “2020” sound like a subtitle at the beginning of a sci-fi movie?
