How to Draw Vert

This was a rough idea I had for a cartoon a while back.  [Perhaps with this website it will eventually get drawn with ink and make it to “cartoon status.”]  I remember growing up with several “How to Draw” books.  Invariably, the books would have several steps to guide you in the drawing of something.  The steps would usually start very simple — making you think that this was something you could actually do.  But then, something would happen around the third or fourth step:  the drawing seemed to “leap” ahead — leaving out several “key” steps.  This was my attempt to poke fun at these frustrating “How to” books.
