When and how were you born? Sand Land?

It was a pen holder that got used to the hand for a long period of time by
scratch it with a knife or sandpaper and wear it down over time. I bought a new pencil holder and tried to sharpen it here and there, but it just didn’t feel right. Since then, I’ve used this as an excuse not to draw ‘manga’ (laughs).
