Leonardo Da Vinci’s To Do List (Circa 1490) Is Much Cooler Than Yours

Leonardo Da Vinci's impressive to-do list is a fascinating peek inside a very curious mind.

Most people’s to-do lists are, almost by definition, pretty dull, filled with those quotidian little tasks that tend to slip out of our minds. Pick up the laundry. Get that thing for the kid. Buy milk, canned yams and kumquats at the local market.

Calling all dog and cat lovers!

My new Book, "How to Draw Dogs & Cats From Simple Templates," comes out march 3rd! Unlike other books on the subject, this one has all the unusual and rare breeds, too, such as a Corgi, Saluki, Entlebucher Sennenhund, and more. And there are also plenty of super-popular breeds, such as the Pug, Golden Retriever, and others. I'm very excited about this one. And this goes for the cats, too. Ever hear see a Russian Blue cat? You will, once you look through this book!

Art and creativity can improve your health.
