most successful artist fakir if I may
bo allowed such a term is lie who
does life-size portraits from ptioto-tM-apiis
by means of solar printing.
Tho solar printing enlarges the photo
graph, and tho mechanical artist
dashes off the crayon, thus saving him
tho labor of drawing tho features. It
is a quick method, and enables the
busy artist to do moro work. Many
photographers have their pictures
mado life-sizo by crayon artists for
$8 apiece. I supposo, though, that the
photographer gels moro than ?fl from
his customers. ' Sonio of theso artists

Of course there are soni j artists o i the

even from a crayon artists point
of view. The best artists rarely go
under $15. unless they are doing work
wholesale for photographers. The
Art League frequently graduates first-
class crayon artists by simply letting
them know that they have no art in
stinct above the mechanical. This in
formation saves tho student vears of
useless study. Tho crayon artist do-
serves credit for his true mechanical
methods, and his cheap prices do not
interfere with other artists who are not
mechanical. Solar printing has
brought life-size crayon and pastel por
