That's pretty much it right there. Try to get away without using the swivel blade at all, it will help you get smoother quicker. Sorta like playing putter-only rounds, except in this case I truly believe that the swivel is inferior 99% of the time. Every now and then I have a tight circle to cut (like <5mm diameter) and I bust it out, but even for one cut it is still more of a pain than just doing my best with the fixed blade.
I think it would be fun to do that same empty sphere you did, with graphics on the ribbon. It would be tough to 'wrap' the graphics with the ribbon of sphere, though. Escher really knew what he was doing.
