A Recent Drawing From My Series, "Death at the Circus" (Cropped)

Here's a closeup on one of the sections. As I've written before, I'm delighted to return to a simple graphite pencil for my finished pieces after so many years of finalizing my work in pen and ink.

Closeup of Umbrella Clown & Monkey. Graphite pencils were tools I used throughout my entire career to create preliminary sketches. They paved the path to the final art, always rendered in India ink. Now, I am using those simple, smeary tools to create the final art. When I began these pieces, I had no idea that my trusty sidekick, a simple No.2 Dixon Ticonderoga pencil, would become a treasure.
