The whole system was working out awesome for awhile, but you know the old saying "no good deed goes unpunished." They wanted me to draw more...and more....and more. I was sick of it.
So, I turned to tech to solve the big problems of my life.
After the kids were on their merry way to school, I scooped up my nemesis, "How to Draw Transformers." I picked a couple of random pages, put 'em face down on the scanner and went to work. Scan. Enlarge.Crop. Rotate. Crop again if needed. Enlarge, enlarge...one more enlarge - whoops too big. Reduce. Ok, perfect. PRINT.

Now my children will go wild coloring in their favorite robots. And I get a break! I'm not saying I'll never sketch them a robot again. I have a relatively short window to impress them. But for crying out loud I can't draw one of these robots every day!
Judge me if you will. Lazy or brilliant?
