Prismacolor pencils are sort of like charcoal, but without the dusty mess. I like their consistency.
My husband asked me if I wanted to go to CTN this year. I usually say no, but this time I don't mind going. Plus, he said they have life models that you can draw there, so yeah, I want to go. I haven't done that type of drawing in years. Probably a decade. I'm looking forward to going, but hoping I don't suck at it.
