pencil sketch & pin wheel

Today's drawing. a pencil sketch. Good practice.

Also, I made this device for making half tone dots. In the old way of doing things totally by hand, it would be called a roullete. They were wheels used to lay down even lines or dots in mezzotint or etching. My wheel is from an inkjet printer screwed to a popsicle stick. The trickey part is laying down evenly spaced rows of dots.
Larry -who runs a great shop on etsy at
told me about roullete's. He does great etchings!
