Re: A Fist Full of Pencil Shavings

You have beautiful control over pencils/graphite! Lovely

A thought on the previous comments about the sketches looking 'dark' or doom and gloom - I had to think of the artist Zdzislaw Beksinski whose works also look dark, scary, grim, that kind of vibe, but apparently he says some were actually more optimistic or even humorous! I personally think a lot of interpretation comes from the spectator themselves (Oscar Wilde: ".. those who read the symbol do so at their own peril, those who go beneath the surface do so at their own peril..").. anyway just a thought I had Beksinski's works are fantastic, if you haven't seen them, check them out
