So actually this is Challenge # 8 but somehow I swapped out 8 and 10. All right, we’re over that now and may continue.
I have not regularly worn a watch in, boy, eight, more like ten years but this is my watch. I’ve worn it perhaps a handful of times. I bought it when at a conference, pre mobile phone days (I note this because all cell phones have the time, the correct bounced off a satellite time) when at some conference where I was a speaker (big deal, relax) and ‘had’ to keep track of time. I stopped wearing watches when I begin consistently getting about by bike more often. Who wants a reverse silhouette watch mark on ones wrist? Leather and fake leather strap ones crack and break while metal ones grab those arm hairs and make a person go insane or twitch at all the wrong times. Mostly I just got tired of being a slave.
I knew it would come in handy if I kept it and it just did as it became my EDM.10 or 8 as it were.
Anyone else out there given up wearing watches?
P.S. About this Super Deluxe Bee Paper! Wow. This haas a fairly heavy application of goauche with nearly entire page coverage, as you can see. What you cannot see is that there is no bleed and how shadowing on the reverse side on which is this sketch from the other day. At 93lb/150gsm I think that is impressive.
