How to: getting that edge

So you overworked some drawings again.
1. Give them to a child

2. Let him/her use many colours and different pens.

3. Voilà: you got that edge!

And you don't even have to pay your co-worker or acknowledge his/her part. The child just thinks you were nice who came with something to fill in. Did you know that Vivienne Westwood got some preschool children to design some textile patterns for her? Check her Gold Label Collection and you'll see their work. How did she pay them? Candies and cakes?

My eldest only wants me drawing princesses for her to colour... I think she's becoming lazy... :)
