    Jacqueline Rose: Marilyn Monroe - She was luminous ? on that much everyone seems to agree. Hers is not the flawless matt beauty of Dietrich or Garbo. She is, as one might say, more curvy ? I am of course referring to her face, on which, unlike Dietrich, Garbo or indeed Elizabeth Taylor (whom she saw as a rival), there isn?t a single straight line. There is no flattening wash over this face. Even Laurence Olivier, who mostly couldn?t stand her, had to concede that every time she a...

    Perry Anderson: Carlo Ginzburg - Carlo Ginzburg became famous as a historian for extraordinary discoveries about popular belief, and what was taken by its persecutors to be witchcraft, in the early modern period. The Night Battles and The Cheese and the Worms, each a case-study from the north-east corner of Italy, were followed by a synthesis of Eurasian sweep in Ecstasies. The work that has appeared since is no less challenging, but there has been a significant alteration of it...

    Mary Beard: Caligula - King Canute has had a raw deal from history. He took his throne down to the beach in order to show his servile courtiers that not even a king could control the waves (that was in God?s power alone). But, ironically, he is now most often remembered as the silly old duffer who got soaked on the seashore because he thought he could master the tides. When, for example, Ryan Giggs tried last year to use a super-injunction to stop the swell of news abo...

    Eric Hobsbawm: Tony Judt - My relations with Tony Judt date back a long time but they were curiously contradictory. We were friends, though not intimate ones, and while both of us were politically committed historians, and both preferred wearing informal gear as historians rather than regimental uniform, we marched to different drummers. Nevertheless our intellectual interests had something in common. Both of us knew that the 20th century can only be understood fully by th...

    Draw a Viking Warrior - If you love fantasy, action and adventure movies you've probably already seen 'Thor' and 'The Avengers' starring the Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth. The movies are based on the Marvel comic books and so don't spend much time in the ancient world - Thor looks like a thoroughly modern hero! Here's a more traditional comic book take on an heroic Viking character for you to draw. Draw a Viking Warrior.Draw a Viking Warrior originally appeared on About...

    Leonardo da Vinci Quotes on Drawing - Leonardo da Vinci is a fascinating artist, and while a few enigmatic pieces get a lot of airtime, I often think that the old master has a lot to offer the modern artist beyond these iconic works. I thought I'd take a look at where Leonardo is coming from and what he has to say on a few topics about drawing, perspective and learning to be an artist.

    Improving Your Drawing: Middle Values - An error I've noticed in many beginner (and even more experienced) artists' work lately is a gap in the tonal range. Often artists will focus on the outlines, so these will be strong, and they know they need confident darks, so they'll shade quite powerful shadows. But then things go a bit pear-shaped when they start to tackle the rest of the shading. I think in part it's a desire to get the subtleties of tone so not to be too heavy-handed, but t...

    Improve Your Drawing - The trouble with being stuck in a rut is that you don't always know it - you keep going over the same old ground and it's not until you're entrenched in a well-worn groove that you discover that you're repeating yourself. If you're lucky, it just means that you never get beyond being 'pretty good' and your work always has that familiar 'look' to it. If you're not, it can mean mediocrity and a slow wearing-away of creativity and enthusiasm. Here a...

    Pencil Shading Exercise - Shade an Egg. - Practicing shading with simple objects is a good way to develop skills quickly. Instead of thinking about a composition with many complicated textures, you can pay attention to subtle changes of tone and concentrate on handling the pencil to get the kind of shading you want. It's useful to try these exercises out with different papers and pencils - for example, as well as basic sketchbook paper, try a smooth hot-pressed paper as well as something...

    Draw Cartoon Sea Animals - Summer for most of us means the sea - if not in it or on it, at least beside it, getting some vitamin D in the warm sun.

With simple shapes and easy steps, even young kids will be able to draw these cartoon sea creatures. First up is a cute cartoon seal. These adorable furry friends a...

    Practice the Tricky Bits - It's always enjoyable to draw the easy things - it's fun when everything goes well and the drawing flows smoothly. It's only natural to avoid difficult things. But unfortunately, avoiding them isn't going to make them any easier! It's a classic feature of any first-year drawing class (especially once they've done enough to realize which bits are hardest) - lots of focus on the torso but the hands and feet either fade out, or fall off the edge of ...
