I found myself in a situation of great frustration last week so I decided to step away from the source and take a breather. While going for a walk, I realized that I had left behind my sketchbook. I quickly went to a nearby shop to pick up an inexpensive book and something to draw with. I admit to having an obsession with sketchbooks. They are the best gift, as I have a shelf filled with those that are full and those waiting to be filled and any time I’m in a store, I tend to gravitate to the sketchbook display only to begin an internal dialogue convincing myself that I don’t need another sketchbook. But, in a moment of desperation, knowing which shops have sketchbooks becomes extremely rewarding.
Armed with new materials in hand, I headed to a nearby park, to people-watch and produce something remarkable and profound. Well, nothing at all worth sharing came despite my determination. I did, however, discover a new tool: The Pentalic Woodless Graphite Pencil.
