I love pencil. There, I said it. No matter what mediums I experiment with, digital or analog...at the end of the day, I always come back to my friend the pencil. The smell of graphite and wood right after sharpening, getting the faintest barely visible line when you're just finding the mark, the way it goes from sharp to dull and you can twist it around to vary the line in a single stroke, the fact that an eraser is just as important for drawing as the graphite itself. And above all, I still feel like I have so much to learn. So many ways to grow with one simple tool.
These Jackalopes are a continuation of a series called Worthy Opponents that I started...last year? The year before!? Yikes, how time flies. Anyways, it's not quite as adversarial as it sounds.
