Inspired by the immortal song by Serge Gainsbourg, “The Initials BB”, here is the pencil study for my next illustration.

    Breathtaking work!! I was also wandering what pencils do you use? Are they mechanical or regular? I get so tired of sharpening mine while working.

    Thank you for the kind words, Jennifer. I am like you, I don’t have the patience for constant sharpening and so use only mechanical pencils. My favorite is actually a clutch pencil, or leadholder, from Faber Castell. I use the TK4600 which uses a 2mm lead and has a handy sharpener built in the top “cap”. I’ll try to post a small article showing how it works :)
