The Chinese Pencil

My wonderful daughter Miranda Grace tossed my pencil away – the one I’d bought expressly to use on this trip to China – and so I was forced to use my ball point pen for all sketches. But once we arrived in Guangzhou I found this silky little number and it’s giving me some nicer nuance to the quick sketches I’m doing in my journal.

Perhaps more will come soon. I’ve done a few drawings of CaiQun and I’m also adding in a few details of hotel rooms, architecture, vehicles (as you’ve seen), and other interesting bits.
