Spend all the day of yesterday, giving some love to this piece of wood, made this board like 6 years ago, and it was perfect, but bought a new one, you know the one bigger artists use, but never got the same vibe in it, and i gave it as a gift to a friend that he was in art school, and never went comfortable again in my portable sketcher, then one day i invited my friends to draw at my house, and saw it again after like 3 or 4 years, i almost lose tears while watching it, then my friend notice it, then past week he returned and gave it to me again. Reunionnnn my child returned.
So yesterday i was polish it, because paint was off, it had oils on it, some cuts with a cutter knife, and the surface was out of shape, so took me a lot of time to polish it, ended brand new, and painted by hand.
I made this one long time ago, with a wood and a metal thing of a recycled board my sister broken, so i just used an screw driver, some rematches metal things and ready.
It doesnt matter if im upside down, on a chair, on a bed, on a coffin, its the perfect size, i just place it on my belly and paper ends right were my eyes needs it.
Usually people ask me, hey Hector how do you do it?, how do you make lines and scans so clean?, thy get so mad when i just reply the, well i just use the eraser. They want an answer of a magical scanner, a magical pencil holder, magical undirty paper, nope, just an eraser and lots of patience.
