Nulla Dies Sine Linea

No, this is not one of my fellow AOA refuseés after getting The Call. It is a drawing from this week's life drawing session.

Nulla Dies Sine Linea is the motto of the Art Students League. It translates roughly as "No Day Without a Line" but it means "You should be drawing every day you schlmiel! Get out that sketch pad!"

é=alt 130 yesssss!

This is Latin, so no diacritic marks needed. Still, what great advice, for both drawing and writing!

Thanks Lali, I actually meant that I don't know how to get an accent over the second (or rather, third)'e' in refusee so that it reads as refusee, rhymes with elysee - not refusee, rhymes with refugee!

Mariella Bisson said...
