The Brian Is An Astonishing Organ

In a post a few days ago I mentioned I was reading “Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain” by Betty Edwards.

The second exercise in the book is to copy an upside down drawing. First, you would think it an impossible task. Amazingly it was relatively easy and enjoyable. Granted it is far from perfect as most of my drawings are, but when I was finished it was amazing how like the drawing I was copying it was.

Along with being not nearly as difficult as I thought, it was somewhat relaxing, as odd as that sounds.

She spent a lot of time in the first part of the book talking about left and right part of the brain differences and and the tasks each seems to control. There is of course much yet to be learned abut the brain and its functions, but I found this information to be very interesting.

When I was a little older than 2 years old I was in a car accident with my father that left me in coma for 2 1/2 weeks. Leaving me with a traumatic brain injury on the right side of my brain. I also had to relearn everything over again that I had learned to do up until the time of the coma.

This of courseThis may be part of why I find the first part of her book interesting.

However this article is about the upside down drawing. I unfortunately started to run out of room on my paper when I was nearing the end of the first drawing so I am posting one other upside down drawing that I did. On Spider Man I see that I have one of his feet weird along with one of his arms…lol ahh got to love it.

If anyone is looking to learn how to draw out there I think this could be a very helpful tool.
