We're converting to a fiber optic connection very soon for our Internet service. So I'm in the process of changing my e-mail provider. What a time consuming task it is to change my e-mail address on every site!
A while back, I visited the new Jerry's Artarama store in Virginia Beach. I discovered these Art Bites All Media Art Panels. And yes they can be used with any media.
I also purchased some jumbo compressed graphite because I want to start experimenting with graphite drawings. The store also offered these Faber-Castell 9000 jumbo pencils that I've been hearing about from other artists. I also picked up two (new to me) colors of Neocolor crayons in Light Cobalt Blue and Rose Outremer.
What really surprised me was finding this calligraphy ink, in Barnes & Noble, in the color Lapis. The directions indicate that the ink should only be used with a steel nib or brush. The color is gorgeous.
