As Illustrators, we weren't allowed all them fancy schmancy mechanical drawing devices.
We weren't allowed eXacto Knives (We used single-edge razor blades, not only for layouts, but to sharpen our pencils ((along with a sandpaper block)).) Nor Rapid-o-graphs... we used a ruling pen.
Fuk press on letters... we HAND Lettered everything.
Krikey Paulette had it even worse.. as a Fine Artist she was made to make her own charcoal, grind her own paints, and stretch her own canvases.
The only modern stuff we were allowed was Grumtine, rubber cement thinner & all the Bestine we could eat, kneaded erasers, a SS T-Square, a true edge drawing board and a bigassed leather zipper portfolio.
What sux is after 40 years, I still have my tons of equipment covering about 20 different methods & media all stored in the attic and hall closet.
Shytes harder to part with than an obsolete Mac Collection.
