Amanda + Colored Pencils REUNITE!

"Christmas lights were invented to convert electricity into happiness."
Last week's post for the Wheelhouse saw me getting back together with a long lost friend—colored pencils. I've been working mostly digitally for so long, primarily because of the efficiency and quality of reproduction. But a conversation with my friend Craig about why I have fallen out of love with art-making led me to fire up the time machine and try it the old fashioned way. I am indeed less pleased with the ground I was able to cover in the same amount of time, the on-screen reproduction, and the hugely significant reduction of color gamut + precision, but the creative process here was much less painful. I also like that it's got that hand-done, human quality to it that my digital stuff has been lacking. I'm not ready to give up on digital, but I think I will try this again.
