a serious love

oh, derwent inktense pencils, how i love thee. let me count the ways.

1. i love you because you are a tease, appearing all demure and then coming on like mae west.
2. with the encouragement of a smidge of water, you like to be pushed around. 
3. once dried, you WILL NOT rewet no matter how i try. you have chutzpa! 
4. your resist outliner is so clever...graphite that doesn't smear, even if you want it to!
5. you are intense...oh, i get it...inkTENSE. clever you. ink instead of watercolors. 
6. there are 72 of you! and each of you lives with me and fits in my great milk mustache maker cup!
7. you are a light packer when we hit the road...a water brush, some paper and a few colors and we are outta here. 
8. you are purdy! smooches.
