Mr. Obvious saves a drawing

Hi Ho... Mr. Obvious here. It has been a while since my last art tip. No? Well, Mr. Obvious has been a busy little bee lately.
Today's tip is how to save that "special" drawing. Sometimes Mr. Obvious makes a drawing that just DEMANDS to be put in a special place. When this happens, I carefully remove the drawing from my sketchbook.

Next, Mr. Obvious has a very special fold he uses on the page. This is a very complicated, intricate fold that is very hard to explain. However, Mr. Obvious has had a lot of practice making this unique fold and can do it rather rapidly. Rather Rapidly... I LIKE how that rolls off the tongue! Anyway, I have a name for this fold... I call it a "wad" fold.

Next, Mr. Obvious carefully places the specially folded art into the designated, upright, special art containment device. I keep this storage container very handy because Mr. Obvious makes a LOT of these special drawings that need to be filed like this. I hope this will be helpful to you as you make your own special drawings.
Till next time... this is Mr. Obvious signing off.

LOL! Are there any special techniques for creating a "wad" fold, or is it up to personal interpretation? Thanks for the tips; keep 'em coming!
