I have a new obsession - pen/pencil/sketching blogs - and related companies/sites. Hopefully, you will benefit from my obsession by finding out about some new sites and products that YOU NEED like I NEED. Here's a short roundup:
Via Swiss Miss, I found out about this cool tool:
Dropmark is a simple way to organize and collaborate with anyone in the cloud. Tina Roth Eisenberg, founder of Swiss Miss, explains: "Let’s say you want to send a friend a few links to look at. Instead of sending an e-mail and pasting in a bunch of links, you can create a Dropmark collection and instantly have one short link that you can send instead. And the collection can be updated at any time." See above Dropmark example.

Via the Life Imitates Doodles blog, I discovered this article on Revitalizing Colored Pencils from Dick Blick. Thank goodness for Synchronicity! I recently purchased a bunch of Prismacolor Colored Pencils. And every time that I sharpen them, the lead keeps breaking. If you know of other remedies for breaking lead, please let me know.
