I got this in the mail a couple days ago. A nice greeting from Kai who is in England right now.
This is what I got at the UM bookstore. Some pens, pencils, paint and a sheet of paper. I got another copic pen and a Faber Casteel Pitt pen. I started a drawing there and needed a better pencil so I bought a new one and an eraser (not in the pic) Oh I also bought this drawing board. I got Sarah one the last time I was there and it seemed pretty nice. So this time I got one for myself. It has a clip board to hold paper in place, a rubber band holder and a handle. They come in all sizes but this seemed a practical size to me.
This is the first stage of my drawing of hawk I only had a 2h pencil, while at the bookstore I picked up a 2b It is starting to look better. You probably can see where I used each pencil. This needs more work but I thought I would share the beginnings at least. This way you know I do some art.
I have the loom warped, all the bobbins are filled, now all I need do is re do the tie up and I can get to weaving. It doesn't look like much yet. Here are a few pics from the studio.
Quote of the Day: "When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw." She stared at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?" ~Howard Ikemoto
