OK, yesterday I broke down and did it. And you know what? It was actually FUN. YES, you evil DrawMoNauts, you’ve converted me to your dark side!! I didn’t have a way to get it to y’all, being too embarrassed to ask the graphics folks to scan it for me, but I remembered today there’s a camera in my cell phone. So I apologize for the quality.
Of course, I didn’t have anything nice to draw on or with. Those of you in the newspaper biz will recognize the paper as what we call a “page dummy.” (“What did you call me??”) The phone, sadly, is the one on my desk. Yes, our paper has yet to make it into the 21st century of telecommunications. Note the sticker that had an old extension on it, that was crossed out with the new one.
My pencil? Partially sharpened “Sparco Saver No. 2 Medium Soft.” Eraser? The pink kind, on the other end. Worked fine though. Shading? Um. . .what’s that? That’s a lesson for another day. ;-)
