Hello! I’m a pencil enthusiast. This might not mean a lot to most people who read these first lines, but it means worlds to me. But lets start at the beginning and with an apology: I’m not a native english speaker, so my english might seem wrong at times or will just be plain wrong. I hope I can minimize this in the future as I get used to writing it more often.
So this is my blog and it will be about pencils, mostly. I plan on doing reviews of pencils, old and new ones. I’m an art teacher and consider myself as being a “drawer” more than a painter. I got quite a collection of new and old wooden pencils and I thought I’d share my findings and experiences with those on the following pages.
My first review that I’ll write in the near future will be about the Faber-Castell “Dessin 2001”. A pencil you can buy at your local supermarket. As I said before this blog will be mostly about pencils, but you can’t write about pencils and ignore the sharpeners and erasers, so there’ll be posts about these too. And I’m also always on the lookout for unusual things related to office and art stuff, so there’ll be some curiosity posts too. I hope you’ll enjoy my blog and hope you’ll find useful information.
