A Study in Arsenic
"Insanity runs in my family... It practically gallops!"
~Mortimer Brewster, Arsenic and Old Lace
I indulged my vintage movie habit the other night with a 1944 classic, Frank Capra's Arsenic and Old Lace. It was such a treat, curling up with pencil & paper to watch the madcap antics of Cary Grant et al. Here and there I paused the movie to make some sketches, just for grins. It's a good thing I did -- turns out I've been doing so much digital work, I'd almost forgotten how to use a pencil.
