attribute portraits

i bookmarked these portraits by jelmar geertsma before i even had the blog, and by some happy circumstance rediscovered them this week when i was trawling through old favourites on a mission to find something else (don’t you love it when that happens?) things organised neatly and portraiture all in one = yes. jelmar explains,

series of portraits i’m making of my family … the portraits are made up of attributes that each of us have for our hobbies or work. the upper-right corner shows painted portraits as well, which are painted by my father.

brand name pencils

a website dedicated entirely to brand name pencils. this is why i love the internet!

you will learn interesting bits of informaiton like this,

WWII-era pencils have very distinct cardboard or plastic ferrules . Metals were needed for the war effort so a hard cardboard or plastic replaced the nickel or brass previously used to house the eraser.
