Pencil Tips, or Rather Tips of Pencils
Here's a problem I'm sure artists, and really anyone who uses a pencil, faces. It's about pencil tips. I don't mean tipping a pencil like you do a waiter. I mean the tips of pencils. You sharpen your pencil, and the way it's sharpened, the wood goes down one side of the tip to the end. It seems like it can make it difficult to use. And, I think when it's like that, it'll keep doing that every time you sharpen it. You have to scrape the wood off of that side of the tip. I've occasionally had this problem with some of my pencils.
My sister made some decorations for my birthday using a machine that makes cutouts of silhouettes. One of the things she made was of The Punisher symbol. It already looked cool, but I photoshopped it, and I think this looks cool too. I like how the skull has a metallic look to it. My sister made the cutout of The Punisher skull with a foil-like paper, which has adhesive on the back. She put that on a black paper circle. The paper is more or less like you'd use for a scrapbook. It's one of my favorite decorations she made. Below is a picture of the decoration.
Here's a drawing I did some years ago. It's of Thor's hammer from the movie, Thor. It's from the scene in the movie. I was looking through some old drawings yesterday and found this one. So, I thought it would be something I could blog.
Happy Earth Day! It's great that the Earth became livable eons ago and that we came into existence on it. Different people have different ideas of how we came into existence on it, but I think the important thing is that we live on a beautiful planet that has pretty much everything a human being could want or need. Earth is awesome!
