Like a great many boys and girls I'd always wanted to find a shark's tooth on the beach. Heard stories of other folks finding them and spent much of my time on the beach trying to find one. I won't go into the embarrassing details of how I finally learned to spot them but a few summers ago we didn't make it to our favorite spot where I've had success finding them. So I drew a couple and began to make my own collection. And like any novice collection, in the beginning there might not be much worth looking at but over time you develop a better eye. Then you roll along, things might get a bit repetitive, a little overly stylized, maybe even a bit cutesy. And you realize you like some of the earlier ones better than the later ones. Then you stop. Until you start again.
