Christopher the Christmas Tree
Well, today's the last day of November ...and I didn't get to all my November pencils/subjects, but that's ok ...because today I drew some wheat.

Yeah, it's just wheat in a field. C'mon, though---when was the last time someone on your watch list just drew some wheat in ACO scale? ...Exactly! :D

Actually, I started to draw the scarecrow character from Oz Kids when it occurred to me that scarecrows protect corn, not wheat. :p
So, apart from (perhaps) drawing a caricature of Sting as an Arthur character, I couldn't immediately attribute any characters to wheat fields (so, again, I just drew the wheat field).

It's the pencil that matters here anyway, so,

Pencil...

The featured pencil is the 'Wheatland' from L.B. Herr & Son. Much like the Perkins Bros Co. pencil featured with our Yakari ACO, this pencil was (likely) made for  its respective office supply store rather than by it (though, again, I could be wrong).

I've seen WWII variants of the 'Wheatland', so this pencil line was around in the 1940s, and perhaps went back even further. Our featured specimen was probably made sometime in the 1950s or 1960s.

...Wheat

Wheat brings so much happiness into my life, but doesn't get much recognition or respect for it.  I approve of the wheat ACO.

HEY! There's nothing wrong with Wheat!
GRAINted it's not something people think of a lot, in fact I've BARLEY thought of it at all RICEntly. Mostly my thoughts have BEAN to legumes and such
but I deGRASS!
WHEAT! It's the staff of life (I think)! :D

Sorry it's getting to the end of the year and my pun quota was getting dangerously low. I promise it won't happen again. :D

As for the pencil well what can you say! It's a nice one but I'd like to know if they had different variations over the years or if they stayed pretty much with that design. Companies like to change their look every few years if their business is getting no traffic or they did something horrible and want to hide it by becoming a 'different' company. :)

I have a few variations (including this one) but they're scattered. I'd have to gather them (like wheat!).
