My hand drawing for the Everyday Matters group weekly challenge. I tried out a new Staedtler mechanical pencil with a thick lead. I like this pencil for quick aggressive drawings, I think; it doesn't feel like it would do small detail or shading as well as the old turquoise pencils.
It is NICE to be "back in the sketchbook"! This drawing only took about 15 minutes, and I realize that even if I WAS busy the past few weeks, I could have given myself 10-20 minutes most days to sketch a little something.
