Hi Kevin,

Really enjoyed your blog. Great pictures!

Also really liked your idea about your program based on "Rule of Thirds". Hope you will be able to make it. Sounds like it would be a very helpful tool.

Yes I do know about blind drawing. In Art Beyond Sight's book they use the technique. But instead of eyes one uses a finger to follow the contours.

Will keep you informed about how the thermean project goes. Thanks for the encouragement!

Hello Miss Lisa,

My name is Kevin, and I am an animator by trade. About eight months ago, my retinitis pigmentosa rendered me legally blind, and I was trying to figure out a way to solve "blind drawing" puzzle as well; granted, it sounds like you've already done quite a bit of research regarding the matter.

I was talking to a friend of mine about somehow writing a program--which also uses sound--that informs the artist about their location within a composition; sadly, aside from using the "Rule of Thirds" as a guideline, he and I haven't talked much about it since. I can still technically SEE how to draw; however, my production pipeline has suffered significant slowdown.

I'm not sure if this would also help, but there is a method of drawing called Blind Contour which could maybe help inspire some ideas; however, in order to create a successful composition, one still needs a relatively functional set of eyes.

At any rate, thank you for contacting me about this wonderful idea. I would be very interested in seeing this put into practice. Best of luck in making this happen!


P.S.  Are you an artist as well? If so, then I'd definitely be interested in seeing some of your work. Here's a link to my website:
