In the child, both writing and drawing develop from what I call the fundamental graphic act, the making of traces on a surface that constitute a progressive record of movement […] The movement of the tool over the surface is both felt and seen, The muscle-joint-skin kinesthesis is emphasized by orthodox sensory psychology, and the visual kinesthesis is emphasized by my perceptual psychology. But these are transient awarenesses. The seeing of a progressive record of the movement of the tool is lasting. There is a track of trail of the movement, like the afterimage of a firebrand whirled in the darkness, except that it is permanent-a stroke, a stripe, or a streak, in short, a trace.
