No. 2’s Are #1

I love pencils!

Before I was a full-time cartoonist, my inky cubicled coworkers would mock my Ticonderogan tendencies, but I continue to grip graphite to this day.

I love the feel of it rubbing against the paper. I love the hexagonical shape in my fingers. And I love the warm gray against the bright white surface.

My absolute favorite pencil? The American Natural. The smooth unfinished body and firm but yielding graphite has sketched untold thousands of my cartoons.

So, you can imagine my joy when Drawn! pointed out the relatively young Pencil Revolution! Go check it out, it’s fascinating.

Can't go wrong with a pencil — always been a favorite of mine, too.
