Sketching with the 66

A Splendid 66 crow.

The Olympia Splendid 66 I keep in Scotland. The shades are vintage 50s, I think, which we found in a box of treasure under the bed. No, I didn't wear them!

It’s good to spend some time with just one typewriter. But it’s also good to be back among the rest of my small herd! The Olympia splendid machines are great for travelling, but this one really resists being used as a sketching tool. I ended up just using it for writing after the first week. The shades were an unexpected match to the colouring of the typewriter.
