Little Point...

Waste not want not, that was our catch phrase in the 1960s, and I certainly never wasted a pencil! This is one I sharpened until it wouldn't sharpen any more. I know that during wartime, DC Thomson issued artists with pencil holders so the graphite would go further, and many were still frugally in use in the 1980s! If I'd had one back in 1968, maybe I'd have got a little extra pencilling done...

I'm still trying to find those pencil holders - none of the art shops in Glasgow seem to have them.
