Notes from the Deckle Edge
If I were to sit in one location and grab my favorite drawing instruments, this is what I would grab sans T-square and pencils. My old triangles have been around...well, a very long time and these are the original pennies I taped to the back. Why are there pennies on the back? So ink or paint will not bleed underneath, a very worthwhile trick-of-the-trade which is still valid for painting at least. The two older drawing instruments, a compass and divider, belonged to my uncle who died when I was quite young. I find them elegant in both form and function. My mother gave them to me when I studied art and mechanical drawing at university. Treasures. Connections. History. I bring it all to the table. Be sure and check the documentary reviews as I have added a couple lately. Back to my brushes.
