  1. ‘Visual Ellipsis’ – how to make a picture without drawing the main item.

My wife is a wonderful artist, and art teacher. I am not. How to draw without technique or ability? Good cartoons need talent. But BAD cartoons are quick and easy.

2 Something that looks square

5 Bear climbing a tree

6 Pig going round a barn
