Keep on truckin' 

When we visited Eric Bransby's studio this past spring ("Writing on the wall," April 7), the anniversary mural he was building for the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center was about ready for paint. That is, the mural's cartoons, or drawings, were almost finished. From there, the 94-year-old Bransby and his 23-year-old assistant, local artist Trevor Thomas, could sandwich a piece of carbon paper between the drawings and the Masonite panels and trace over the lines of the cartoons, transferring the lines to the panels.
