I got some lovely new drawing things the other day to add to my collection. It can be a bit disheartening to exit the art supply store $80 poorer but richer in a small collection of burnt wood and graphite. But it’s all worth it. I picked up a charcoal/lead holder (the wooden thing in the middle), it hold nice thick pieces of graphite and charcoal and it’s perfect for this project. Also, some more willow charcoal – I love that stuff in combination with vellum, it slips and slides over the surface, makes really interesting marks and can be lifted off with a kneadable eraser.
