Know what this is?
It's a stick of awesome. Also known as a magic pencil.
It really is magical, though. See, it has a multi coloured lead, so when you draw with it, the colours change as it wears down. And don't tell me they're for kids, because KOH-I-NOOR makes a really good one, and I like it too much to be told it's immature.
Anyway, it's been a lot of fun on the class drawing trips we've been on lately. This drawing was from the petting zoo at Willowbank... the goats kept putting their head through the wooden fence, and getting their horns stuck. Fully adorable.
See what I mean? Everything looks better when you draw it with a magic pencil!
Also, I learnt something interesting at the petting zoo: Goats and sheep have rectangular irises. Surely I should have known this, living in NZ, the land of sheep related bestiality jokes... but instead I freaked out when I saw their eyes.... and everyone was like "so what?".
Oh well. I guess it just proves I'm not like these guys, then. Heh.
