I love the look of these color pencils. I use to draw during my high schools days, but I haven't done it in almost 10 years. I still color in the occassional coloring book, but no more actual drawings. I think these bark color pencils would get me back in the loop with the art world. Plus I think they would just look great in a big glass cylinder as a centerpiece in my home somewhere. Oh I wish I had a home studio!
