The drawings above were created using 2B and 3B graphite pencils and an eraser together on smooth cartridge paper.

I’ve found that by drawing a little and then using an eraser over the top of the graphite, a fine film is produced on the paper. Layering of this film and graphite gives the drawing a more photographic effect.

    Hi Wildwitch,

    This is a cool site. It’s the first time I’ve really looked at it, love your drawings and love your bears. I like the the bear with the tie reading the book, will look at it in more depth, just thought I’d let you know I was looking.
