toes that twitch with vocal cord vibrations.

i've been trying out different mediums on wood panels. I was sure i was going to take up wood burning as a new medium, though after some trials i don't think it will be a very quick process. i've decided not to do it for the series of women i'm doing for the square foot show. I was hoping it would work well for my line work, which you can see on the right side of some of her face, but i kept getting very bumpy lines. 

I tried markers, ball-point, pencil, highlighters, gouache and i think i'm still falling back to my trusted pencil.
