  1. It turned out well, didn't it? Made me miss those old scratchboard things we would do in elementary school, with the crayons and the black paint.

    Also, I must absolutely credit my wonderful wife with the inspiration for this piece. We were discussing this odd line of text while waiting for sub sandwiches, and she instantly said it made her think of a light bulb. And thus, this piece was born.
