I am such a gotta-have-it-on-paper, need-a-hardcopy kind of gal that I often print out things that I could just as easily view on the computer screen. But one of my rationalizations for the laptop was that, unlike my big pc, it could sit in my studio at the ready and I would no longer have to print out reference pictures or directions in one room to have available in the other. It's a hard habit to break, this need for paper. I'm one of those underliners and highlighters and find it easier to flip through a sheaf of paper than scroll through a pdf file up on the screen. However, my first lino class lesson came in a pdf 23 pages long. I really wanted to print it off, pictures and all, but that's a lot of paper and a lot of ink. It has forced me to follow through with my original plan and frankly, in this case having my instructions and photo guides on the screen is working out better than the printed page. Knee jerk reaction averted.
