I grew up as a "jack of all trades", and sketching, painting and drawing were part of my favorite hobbies. When I came across this kit, it reminded me when I used to make pictures of artists such Julia Roberts combining pencil sketching with crayons coloring. So I decided to get this one for myself with the hopes of having time soon to partially retake my hobby. I was surprise at the completeness of this set and very pleased. It has all the pencils you need, pencil sharpener, note pad and even erasers!
