got a pencil...& some patience?


Chances are the pencil will be the easier of the two to find.

Last night while blogsurfing I landed & lingered here : http://captainquasi.blogspot.com/ & revisited again this morning. From there I followed links that led me to lots of interesting e-locations. Following are some bits & pieces I collected along the way that I thought to share. If you enjoy them as I did, stop over to captainquasi - let him know - & poke around there for awhile on your own :) I have NO IDEA who he is other than that he is self described as "an interesting fellow" & from what I gather...he is true to that form :)

If you've got a pencil perhaps you can do something like this...

Pencil Art by Linda Huber

using the artist's drawing tips. One thing you should know... much of her work takes 20 - 80 hours to complete! Her website art gallery is a must see.

No pencil?! .... Well then --- perhaps you have some crayons on hand? They'll do fine too.

Hmm....What great possibilities these simple tools pack when they're wrapped in the patience required of their potential!

and
patience is better than pride.
