my ninth favorite idea from the work of other students:


Josh's resistor is drawn with love and care for line placement, weight, terminations - like a classic drafting. I am reminded of my basic drawing classes in art school, where Professor Reed had us pay such close and careful attention to where our lines began and ended, and how they made their way between. I see no trace of eraser marks on Josh's page, answering my hope that Josh was so careful as to make no mistakes in his rendering of the humble resistor. Where he could have used "cheap tricks" like hatch marks or shadow smears, Josh used line weight alone and gentle curves to convey to me the resistor's volume and weight. Josh has created a thoughtful sketch, not because it is perfect, but because it was drawn with fine attention to simplicity and detail.
