Drawing Glove by StarTyrian Drawing Glove by StarTyrian
Behold, it is my latest invention! As modeled by the astounding *AtomicFireball -- a hand-knitted drawing glove! Now, the truth is, I didn't invent the concept; there are a couple companies selling lycra ones for about $15 a pop not counting shipping. That seemed kinda cheezy to me, so I set out to do something better for cheaper.

These are hand-knitted from Brown Sheep 'Cotton Fine', an incredibly soft, machine washable blend of 80% cotton, 20% merino. I have 8 colors on hand, and if there's a lot of demand I can even expand that color repertoire. I've figured out and tested patterns for three sizes. They work for either righties or lefties. And even though they're hand-made I'm only asking $10 each, because as an artist myself I know artists aren't usually swimming in cash. :D

Available colors are sage, pink, black, red, white, yellow, olive, blue. Please fullview to see how to choose your size!

HOW TO ORDER:

Via Paypal: send me a DA note with your size, color choice, and shipping address; send $10 plus shipping ($2 in North America, $4 everywhere else) to jesse-paypal@studiowhippingboy.com, being sure to mention in the 'note to seller' which order is yours.

Via snailmail: send your check, money order, or well-concealed cash -- again, $10 plus shipping ($2 in North America, $4 everywhere else) -- along with a note giving your size, color choice, and shipping address (even if it's on the envelope, because those can get mixed up!) to:

Studio Whipping Boy
204 7th St. W #103
Northfield, MN 55057

Support my knitting habit, keep your drawing hand happy and your tablet clean!

I usually just buy the $1 unisex fingerless gloves at walmart and cut out the area around the thumb. They fray a lot over time though, so i have to replace them occasionally... =/
Other art gloves like this are much more expensive, so this is a pretty good deal. =D

-____-It makes me wonder if a guy could wear these and not look... you know. I like the idea of it, and I HATE FREAKIN' GRAPHITE STAINS ON MAH PAPUH(!!!), But I AM a guy.... -__-" Why do the best ideas always have to be the least good looking... Maybe a less...knitted one, but, of course, that would prob'ly mean more sticking and more expense..... *SIGH* Otherwise this is pretty cool and a good deal......

-_______-" I should've prob'ly checked to see that you were a guy first... If only there were a glove to prevent that kinda stuff from happening to me all the time...... I'd get it even if it was pink, I'd just have to color it. O____O Idea alert... A black drawing glove may be better suited than switching matterials... Wow, this is prob'ly the longest comment I've ever posted.

Oh, and maybe like a fire design or something... These would be more popular with designs for genders...... I was gunna say something about putting studs on them, but decided that was a bad idea... Oh, sorry for fillin' up the page, btw... I'll stop now.

Love 'em!!! but... would it be possible to order one that wasn't made with a merino blend? maybe pure cotton/polyester/whatever? 'm vegan, so merino wool isn't really working for me, but I could really do with one of these, and I'd be perfectly willing to pay extra for the yarn...?

Ack, okay I not only really want one, I NEED one. I hate the feeling of running the side across my paper or tablet. And I'm terrible about smearing because I wanted to touch something up. This solves both problems.

Expect my order as soon as I work out finances.

How do they handle getting washed? Do they shrink? Unravel?
Reply
:iconstartyrian:
StarTyrian Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009
They won't unravel. I suggest machine washing on gentle cycle, cool or warm, not hot. Dry flat to keep the shape, or tumble dry medium to tighten the stitches if it stretched out in use.

StarTyrian Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2009
Yeah, I love how they look but they're a real pain to work with. A few years back I started developing a technique for combining them with oil paint washes and glazes, which looked neat, but it was an amazing amount of work. Like, old-masters, spend-a-year-on-one-picture amount of work. o_O

Hmm, someone recommended oil paints to me a while back. I have lots of acrylic stuff (remnants of GCSE art at school), but it dries too fast and kinda bugs me :/ Oil is more... malleable? Flexible? I'm just saying random words now XD

In other news, I keep typing jokes as jocks now, and i am blaming you. Congratz. :P

:iconstartyrian:
StarTyrian Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2009
Oil stays workable a lot longer, yeah. Depending on whether you add a drying medium and what the room's humidity is, anywhere from hours to weeks.

As long as you don't tell me my jock is a joke, blame me all you want. :D

Huh, I had not heard of them. But I now have them bookmarked for later shopping. Their sock yarns are gorgeous. Looks like they don't do superwash, though, and I'm kind of addicted to superwash sock yarn. :D

Oh Superwash rocks the planet. I'm fond of Brown Sheep's sport weight singling especially in the heathered colors. Their Bulky was also sweet to knit. There were several small mill type companies that made some seriously delightful blends including a silk/Merino/Alpaca that flew through the fingers it would knit so smoothly. Like an idiot, I did not keep the band so I could not even tell you who made it. >_< My bad. Where I'm at presently, the idea of fiber shops is not only alien, it's thought of as not possible. *sigh* The internet becomes my saving sanctuary.

Hm, I should spin a silk/merino/alpaca blend. I just found a great source for alpaca. I got a half pound bag of natural, undyed alpaca that's so black I can hardly see what I'm doing. :D

My most fondly remembered luxury yarn: Handmaiden Casbah. Superwash merino/cashmere in deep spicy colors. I knitted a pair of eggplant-cinnamon-turmeric colored socks that I have to rub on my face whenever they come out of the dryer. #^_^#

Dude... You need to go to Seattle to the University district and make a trip to The Weaving Works [link] . The place is like a candy store for fiber artists of all sorts. Lots of goodies to play touchy feely with.

The Earth Guild [link] has cool stuff too.

For massive amounts of fiber my favorite is Zeilinger Wool Co [link] . I've worked with them for well over 10 years and I love their product. Yeah... Can you tell I'm a fiber freak?

Sweet, I'll check them out! My current favorite sources are Paradise Fibers [link] for most things and Sheep Shed Studios [link] for plain wool mill ends. Sheep Shed's mill ends are INCREDIBLY cheap. You have to do a little hand-sorting, but so far out of like 20 pounds, all the unusable fiber I've found could fit in a mixing bowl. For under 10 bucks a pound that ain't bad!
