Pens, glue, playing cards

I took some photos at the grocery store and chose this image as one I wanted to draw. I love the variety of items crammed in this small space and I enjoyed capturing their details.

Here is the original photo:

Here is my drawing. Pen and ink, 8″ x 8″. October 2022.

      I cannot resist stopping and looking over this kind of display. It’s got exactly all the things I like best (maybe not the playing cards, I’m indifferent there, but the other stuff…)

      Thank you. Ever since I was little I have loved school supplies and stationery and so on, and this kind of display draws me like a magnet. I could spend all day in a store full of this kind of thing.

      You know, it’s funny, I do the same thing, stock up on notebooks and the like at that time, not from being a teacher, because I wasn’t, but from being a schoolchild. It just naturally occurs to me when I see that time of year comes around and the talk about supplies…I still go right out and get them. Ever since when, I guess about 1963? My last school year was 1980. My goodness.
