In the past I have written about sketchbooks I have bought that seemed like a good idea at the point of purchase but failed miserably when put into practice. Either the sketchbooks looked handsome on the shelf and proved unwieldy … Continue reading

One of the great things about the internet is that it’s so vast that there is always something new out there. Even if an article was published months or years ago, chances are good that it’s going to be new … Continue reading
Here’s another shot of the shop formerly known as Smiles. I have posted about this shop before, but this is a different view. This is the corner of Broadway and Olive Street circa 1982.
