Decided to give Conte crayons another try. I had big problems with Conte before because of my odd way of gripping a pencil. I would grip it in such a way that I couldn't see what I was drawing - my hand would be in the way, engulfing the little conte stick. Well, I got a pencil holder for it, so now I can see what I was doing. What a difference it makes (obviously)!
less than 30 minutes...
And that's it!
In other news, 9 hours from now I take my citizenship test to become a bonefide American. I can't wait!
