Pencil on Strathmore paper (which I wish I could find more of; it is the most gorgeous , responsive paper...a joy to make pencil marks upon.)

Beautiful pencil work!!!!!!!!!
What's the finish and weight of the Strathmore?
I'll see what I've got!

Thank you, Doug!

It's a rather heavy-ish weight, and a very soft, texture-y finish. Haha, yeah, I know that's not much help.

Wait--I showed you a sample of it at lunch a few weeks back, didn't I? Yes, I do believe I did...

Took me a minute, but I remember now.

Texture-y finish .... nice!!!!!!

It was wonderful.It is a good article,thank you for sharing it.
More and more people like sports, because of sports can bring them the

endless enjoyment.
But I have one suggestion. when you exercise, you must choose suitable

clothes.
when you play nfl

football
.It is better to wear player jersey which you loved him.
The Victoria's Secret and nike shoesis the same important.The

comfortable clothes ever,enough to make every day energetic.
An active, energetic young man works like a tiger.
