The Last Typewriter!

The news of the last typewriter being manufactured in Britain, made me feel more than a little bit sad. I remember being five years old and being greeted by a shiny new red typewriter on Christmas morning. There's something about using a manual typewriter that has a completely different atmosphere from using a laptop. For me, it has the same feel as sketching, starting off with a blank sheet of paper that could be messed up at any point. I like having that level of unpredictability when I'm working which is probably why I have never fared well using illustration software to complete any of my artworks- I'm old school all the way with my drawing!
Here's some fifties typewriter ads to lift the mood...
