I sat at one of its picnic benches this afternoon, absorbed in the almost meditative process of quickly sketching an angular roofline, simply because I could. It was a therapeutic exercise. I find that following my friend Michael Nobbs’ regular and prolific Tweets about many things connected with drawing is not only informative but also inspirational. Twitter: michaelnobbs.
With just a pen and paper there’s no technology to trigger tantrums. I wish I could say the same for computers. This one isn’t letting me type today, and when it does, it isn’t saving my work. My Pentel simply drew, continuously and effortlessly.
