Here are some pages from my Moleskine sketchbook. As you can see it doubled as an autograph book when Anna Karina came to town earlier this year. Some of these are inspired by her and another sixties actress Yoko Tani (the girl in the spacesuit).
The drawings on the last four pages were done with a new pencil i am trying out, Faber-Castell’s PITT oil based pencil (black). Thanks to Justin Coffee for putting me onto these. They are available in a variety of grades but Melbourne art stores only seem to carry the extra soft grade.
You get a wonderful range of grays and a nice rich black similar to a black coloured pencil. Light lines can be erased and are smug free. They sharpen well and at $AUD1.80 a real bargain. Check out the review at Penciltalk.org here.
