Have you ever used one whole pencil to the end?
Some may take few hours, some may take few days.
There is "time" between "things" and "ourselves," and each time has different quality.
This time, we try to use up one pencil to the end.
Let's draw to know the time between pencil and yourself, and feel the relationship between pencil and your physical strength. Use your whole body and draw together!
