If you've got the stick figure blues, David's got a wonderful cure that he picked up from a Stanford professor. Whether you're a kindergartener or a senior executive, he teaches the same way. Make your usual circle for a head, then imagine you're drawing a droopy, bulbous leaf. Resist those crabby old stick arms. Let your pen sweep out like a four-pointed leaf, one for each arm and leg. I think you'll be surprised. In five minutes I've seen David teach the most art-resistant corporate types how to sketch a far more friendly, human-looking person.permalink source: Tom Kelley, The Art of Innovation, p 182.
