In search of a tool

February 18, 2016

terrier plate start


How long does it take to find one simple needle tool? Apparently all day. I searched through all the various tool drawers, shelves, bins, tins and even under and behind the drafting board. I checked the floor and around the press. It had to be somewhere close. Of course, it’s been a year since last using it. How can one simple thing hide so well? And it’s the one and only tool I’ll be using for this plate before inking.

Eventually, I did find the needle tool tucked into a “non-printmaking” supply drawer.  Why would I even consider putting it in that drawer? I must have wanted to totally confuse myself. Anyway, the plate is now officially started. Size 4″ x 6″.

    These things disappear through a wormhole in the space time continuum operated by mischievous goblins

      Ah, those must be the ones who steal socks and refuse to clean the house! 😀
