At the sharp end...

Well, as the kids return to school after a sun-filled, fun-filled few weeks, it is time for me to get back into the stride of more structured working days. Summer is usually a relatively quiet time for me design-wise and this year it was no exception with just an evening here and there spent catching up on work. However, it looks like September is going to make up for that and then some. So, I have invested in a new propelling pencil, plenty of 0.5 leads and started a fresh notebook in preparation for the busy days ahead. Whilst I admire a properly sharpened pencil as much as the next person, time is of the essence when taking notes and sketching ideas hence the propelling pencil. But when it comes to keeping your pencil sharp, this chap really is at the cutting edge:
