I dint get any further response from you, at least none that reached me. I stopped artwork for two months because I think one of the officers out of resentment that inmates were doing artwork broke the handle off the pencil sharpener. I believe this because if an inmate had broken it the broken handle would've been in the Inner Perimeter Security Office. Instead, it was simply in the unit control booth for 2 months.
We've been partially locked down a long time. We just got off an intensified lockdown following lots of covid infections in the prison. Two of my friends on the unit died of it. One was a very good artist, and a talented self-taught electronics repairman. The other was a druggie that I enjoyed arguing with from time to time.
The only art supplies available have been colored pencils.
The pencil sharpener is necessary because the pigment cone of those pencils fracture easily if you use a toenail clipper to whittle them. Anyway I submit an original, "The Ship Chandler."
