  3. I don't know if you've ever worked with conte crayon, but it's awful. Like charcoal, only without everything that is good about charcoal. It's slightly greasy and doesn't smudge easily and makes your hands feel soapy and gross.
    That being said, I do enjoy this drawing.

  4. When I draw things, I have to label what they are, so ... until now, I didn't even know what conte crayon was.

    The only time I've ever used charcoal was after taking Ambien, and I thought what I was doing was genius, until I woke up in the morning, took a look at the vaguely flower-shaped shitstain I'd left on the paper and vowed never to bother trying again.
