    You can always use Photoshop, it has all if not most of the art tools you’ll need.

    Except, you know, capacity to actually create something physical.

    I think this is pure Dana Simpson. A girlfriend of mine was an artist and we could not pass an art supply shop without at least checking the Prismas and picking up another sketchbook with textured paper she wanted to try.

    Hey don’t forget the glitter and pony paint.

    Being an artist type myself, I fully understand….

    So why is Phoebe’s mom – an artist – “shopping for school supplies” in an art supply store? A little self-absorbed, wouldn’t you say? Reminds me of how Mom used to take all four of us boys shopping for school clothes… at LaPointes, which, of course, was a woman’s fashion beautique. They did have a very small section of kids and mens stuff down in the cellar. But I always wondered why she would take us there instead of Sears or Penny’s…. until I realized that we had to walk past acres of ladies things to get to the cellar things.

    “Except, you know, capacity to actually create something physical.”


    TRUE… but the UP-side is that it you can edit/change/modify or make variations of an artwork, less to no wastage, saves money on art supplies (depending on the art project) and best of all… NO CLEANING!


    Physical creation-wise… there’s always a 3D-Printer for small projects.

    I feel the same way about high quality engineering notebooks.

    I just take my digital photos to staples and print them out, then frame them.

    It’s ballpoint pens for me, I have more than I’ll ever use but I can’t resist buying a different or unusual looking one.

    I remember when my brothers and I were around 10 or so and my dad bought us all skiing gear, in his size.

    I guess… it all depends on you’re looking for in your artwork… but it’s still satisfying/fun seeing your creation made a reality/manifest.


    Also, I would love to get my hands on a 3D-Printer. At a very young age, I always wanted to make my own toys or custom toys.

    It’s like having your very own replicator from Star Trek!!
