I was recently lucky enough to get a grant from the folks at The Puffin Foundation to create booklets that teach incarcerated men and women the fundamentals of observational drawing. I wanted to do a portion about the value of copying as an exercise, boring though it is. I'm really dislike copying, but it is good practice and not so bad if you've got a few This American Life episodes to catch up on. For not being traced, its relatively close.

This is a Roman sarcophagus from the Roman National Museum. It recounts the victory (depicted more as a slaughter,) of the Romans over the heathen Gauls, or some tribe. Judging by the ancient sculptures, it seems that those poor Gauls had a pretty miserable millennium.
