Charcoal is your friend

I've been playing around with charcoal lately, I'd never really used it much before. I'm using fat sticks so I can't get too tight with the details. I actually made the sticks in the fireplace after seeing a demo online...I'm always up for making stuff! Drawing with charcoal on cheap newsprint paper is fun and fast and messy and it's also closer to painting that drawing with a pencil point. These are all under 5 minute sketches.

My friend and I were recently talking about technology, and how integrated it has become to our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about almost every day.
