Traditional Art FeatureBefore I get down to business I must tell you what my darling and so funny husband said today. He often gets words a bit wrong, or mixed up, but today he offered me 'a bit of slip and tackle'. We were on a bus at the time and I laughed my head off. For an inappropriate amount of time He'd meant 'slap and tickle'
There never seems enough time to put together the Features that I desire to do. These days I'm very hard pushed to keep up with just my messages at times! Newsletters and Polls can be hard to get around to reading, and Group Deviation thumbnails pile up - though I always do sift through and view my Friends' submissions... eventually!
But enough about struggle, happy struggle though that is :iconbutterfreeplz: On to the Feature I do hope you enjoy these - all of which (of course!) I think are incredibly amazing!!!
Black & White (or at least relatively so!)
Best of 2012As is normal during this time of the year, I thought I would celebrate some of the best traditional graphite drawings I have seen this year. These are the people who I admire, and those that remain an inspiration to any inspiring pencil artist. They are what I deem to be the glitterati of DA, the royal family of pencil art and those that us mere mortals can only hope emulate in our dreamsBest of 20122 years ago in Personal More Like This
I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I do, if you are going to Watch anyone on DA - then watch these, sit back and admire!!

HELLO DEAR ALL.....
FOR A CHANGE, I THOUGHT OF ILLUSTRATING
SOME OF MY FAVOURITE SONGS WITH ART...
I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS.....:iconplzhug:
I SHALL START WITH "CARUSO"
This is a song written by Italian singer-songwriter
Lucio Dalla in 1986.
It is dedicated to Enrico Caruso, an Italian tenor.
(February 25, 1873 – August 2, 1921)
Here, where the sea shines
and the wind howls,
on the old terrace beside the gulf of Sorrento,
a man embraces a girl
after he stopped crying,
then he clears his throat and continues the song..
I love you very much,
very, very much, you know;
We've formed a bond by now,
that thaws the blood in my veins, you know

So I've been collecting them 'loose' instead and now I can feature them before I file them neatly away.
I'd recommend you get yourself some refreshment because there are rather a few and, as you will soon realise, they are not in any order at all, but I really hope you love them all as much as I do...
