National Cartoonists Society
The National Cartoonists Society is the world's largest and most prestigious organization of professional cartoonists. The primary purposes of the NCS are to advance the ideals and standards of professional cartooning in its many forms, to promote and foster a social, cultural and intellectual interchange among professional cartoonists of all types, and to stimulate and encourage interest in and acceptance of the art of cartooning by aspiring cartoonists, students and the general public. The Society's offices are located in Winter Park, Florida. In addition, the NCS has chartered 16 regional chapters throughout the United States and one in Canada.
The watercolor dot cards is by and large one of the best products I've ever bought, and something I wish every watercolor company did. I bought this from Daniel Smith's official site, but it should be said here. The colors exceeded my expectations, especially for what you get which are small samples of all their colors available. They stretch a lot longer than you'd expect, and the colors themselves are beyond marvelous. I plan on buying a few full size paint tubes for my supplies.
I'm loving this work desk/station, and I put it together in no time at all.
The station is moveable; around the room or from room to room. The casters make it easy. That said, I have a laminate floor, and have to have the casters braced against something to stop them from rolling away with the station. If you have the same problem, you might try using the included stationary feet.
Lowering the angle of the top might catch a finger if you're not aware.
The drawers are lightweight and small, but nice to have at your fingertips. The side trays are molded plastic. Pencil sized holes work great for differing sizes of pencils, brushes and grease pencils.
I used it as a light table with a lamp under the station.It worked great.
There is a large metal "pencil tray". It's handy, but it will remind you that you should not lean on the top.
I received a pot of gold and one of silver in a "hand me down" box from a friend that included a variety of paints and other art treasures! So I do not know how old these products are. I tried the gold right away on an embossed piece I had laying around and was amazed at how beautiful it worked out. I have been using another gold product in the past, and it is no where near as beautiful as this. I am a believer, and will use Treasure gold forever!
