drawing with pretty small pencils ✏️ (pretty & small)
Hello Today we’re drawing with pretty small pencils pretty AND small pencils. And, a little eraser, that doesn’t work with these very much because erasers don’t really work with colored pencils very well, in my experience. And it comes with a LITTLE pencil sharpener uh… that doesn’t really work with any pencils besides these ones, unless you have other pencils… uh… that are the same diameter. uh… yeah Anyways, so I began drawing and, I will admit this is …it’s very easy to get hand cramps or finger cramps. It’s… My poor little hands just aren’t used to these poor little pencils. And so… I just had to take lots of little breaks. I mean it’s not that bad. Look, these pencils …this little case of pencils, I grabbed on some little corner shop in Chicago some years ago not… Nnnonono… that makes it sound like it was like 15 years ago… It was probably like 3 years ago. um… uh… but! They’re probably supposed to be like a travel pack, right? Supposed to be able to keep it in your pocket, or something, and… do some little sketching on the go. Personally, I would be afraid to do this because I’m afraid I would um like, swing them out… and, uh.. I feel like… it would be really easy for them all to pop out like if I had it on the train or something maybe I would do it out in the park, at a picnic table. But THEN… I could just have, a little.. have my backpack with me, and… I dunno Maybe it’s just a novelty thing. And, uh, in any… situation… I could have a REAL set of pencils. Not these little ones. Even though these are very adorable. Very fun to draw with. And at some point Sometimes, I think I felt like I was really drawing… The way I was holding them uh… I felt like I was really drawing with the tip of my finger Which… I have had dreams night and day dreams about Uh… like, if I was gonna have a human augmentation, ya know? There’s… …there’s a lot of stories, tv shows, video games about… augmentations. About people getting beefed up arms, and… laser vision, and… You know, being able to breathe under water you know… Bio this and that. And… Cyborgs, and… everything. You know… The… It goes on and on and on. But! What I would like is to be able to draw with the tip of my finger. That would be cool. Maybe be able to switch it out, between different types of pens and pencils and colored pencils *zzzzzt! zzzzzzt!* Switch… eh… Yeah, that’d be sweet. I was thinking about having, ya know, different attachments, on the different tips, like… maybe my index finger would be a pen, and then my middle finger would be a pencil, and uh… my ring finger could be like a paintbrush. But… I’m not really… It doesn’t feel RIGHT DOING anything, with any of the fingers ya know, like Drawing with my ring finger, and my pinky or even my middle finger feels a little weird. I’m sure I could get USED to it. You can get used to anything. I say that all the time. But.. It’d be better… If I’m gonna get an augment I’ll pay I’ll pay extra… I’ll pay even double to be able to get the one that switches out multiple multiple tips, in one finger. Alright? Yeah. Or maybe… you could put an eraser I’m trying it out right now. Kind of. And eraser in the middle finger. Yeah. So you can draw with one finger — with the index finger… Try it out! And then erase with the middle finger. NOT that I erase very much. Yeah. I think that would work well. And, uh… You can… *mmm* Yeah. That’d be perfect! That’d work well for me. Sign me up! I’ll join the beta program. Um… I’m sure it would… uh… go horribly at first. So, maybe not that. Maybe not the alpha program. No… Maybe I SHOULD join the alpha program. You know, be at the leading edge of things. Maybe… the first few times my finger might get infected and fall off. It might REJECT the… the the pen finger I’m trying to thi…. There’s probably some catchy name. Hit me up with those catchy na… There’s… I feel like there’s a good pun here, for like a finger pen… pens… pennnnnnn…. I feel like I’m… It’s like right on the edge of something… I should have thought out this more before I started talking. But I thought about it I thought about it in the middle of a commentary! OK! Whatever. um… but… These were fun to draw with. I just started sketching… LOOK! you… don’t let artists’ block stop you from drawing something I had… I HAVE artists’ block all the time. What I feel like a lot of people’ think is artists’ block Like, I had quote unquote artists’ block when I started this drawing but I thought look I wanted to draw something, but I didn’t know what to do… I was like “I wanna draw something but I don’t know what to do.” Like “Ughhhhh…” But there’s nothing… There was nothing… stopping me from physically starting something, so I just started scribbling things on the paper And, this is what it turned into. Like I didn’t have a grand ins…. any grand inspiration coursing through my veins that that.. ya know… URGED me to make this drawing. And maybe that’s apparent. Maybe not. Doesn’t really matter. I made something. I moved forward. I created something that wasn’t there before. That’s a good sign. That’s a wonderful thing. Alright. So… It’s cool. You don’t haveta… You don’t have to have an IDEA in order to make something maybe for some things ya do but for some things… ya don’t! Alright. So it’s ok. Like I’ve said before the main way I get around artists’ block is by convincing myself that it’s.. not a real thing. OK? Maybe that’s not helpful for some people… BUT! It’s helpful for me. Ok. Goodbye everybody. Uh… Hope you have… all have a wonderful… day! Goodbye.
