they didn't have the charcoal paper i wanted so i bought some bogus rough sketch paper. it's different, but i might get to like it. if nothing else, it's cheap.

hands


i've always struggled with hands. simple yet complicated, beautiful, human, and always interesting. we're used to training our face to hide emotions or put up a desired front, but it's our hands that often betray us to those who know to watch them. they are also shaped by our work and lifestyle. are they rough, are they soft, are they strong, are they articulate like a pianist's? they have a language all their own and they speak about us.
