There is an extremely tempting ten-pound sack of seed potatoes lurking in the corner, but I’m practicing restraint and finishing my art assignments before indulging in a day of planting my favorite early-spring crop. Currently, my drawing table is covered in sketches for a new tutorial — How to Draw Hands — on the Derwent Pencils blog, Love Pencils. Watch for it within the week!

Two more days of illustration responsibilities to go. On Sunday, you’ll find me happily digging in the potato patch.  Oh, yes.
