How pencils are made today - Derwent Pencil Factory, Cumbria, UK

When my kids were young, we used to watch Mr. Rogers Neighborhood on Public TV, and he would show videos about how various things were made. I recently found this video by Derwent about how they make pencils and enjoyed watching it. If you are a fan of pencil art, or manufacturing, you may enjoy viewing this video too!


Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

From Ann Arbor News Article 

I am thrilled to announce that I will establish a new art studio above the Dancing Dog Gallery. Formerly the Herb David Guitar Studio.  This historic building is being renovated to accommodate a new elegant gallery with several artists studios on the second floor.

Downtown Ann Arbor is a nice mix of restaurants, theaters and stores. The Dancing Dog  Gallery is sure to become a popular local art destination. This is something I have waited for and I am grateful to  be a part of this venture.
