I read a short paragraph today I wanted to share with you. Something to think about that adds mystery to the already magical tool we call a pencil.
“Graphite is a form of natural carbon, created, like coal, by the pressure of the earth on the decaying forests of pre-history.”
-The Artist’s Handbook 3rd edition by Ray Smith
So the next time you are staring at a blank sheet of paper, just consider for a moment the ancient land from whence your graphite came.
