My messy table in the small book studio, where I work on small stones. Like to prep before I begin drawing. I sharpen all of my litho pencils to a fine point before I start. That way I don't break my momentum to keep sharpening during the drawing process. Mostly Korns #5 but some #4s, and one or two #3s.
Meanwhile the garden is having a second spring and I'm stuck inside. This is a glimpse of my art deadlines coming up, mostly prints, one book edition and one painting. I just added a new edition (large format 30" x40") due in mid-Feb, the edition size is only 15. I'm covering a friend's print class tomorrow as much as I love working with students, this is a pretty busy time. Need to get back to my stone drawing...procrastinating : ) as usual. A and I are taking a student artist out to dinner tonight, part of a neat "mentoring" program that the University has set up.
