Calligraphy in pencil


I was enjoying my pencils so much that I just continued . . . 
There is something so wonderful about a pencil. It seems more forgiving than ink. I feel more relaxed with a pencil in my hand than chisel and ink. 
I have to give a shout out to my teacher/inspiration, Peter Thornton. 
His workshops have always amazed me and given me the opportunity to better understand letterforms.

Although I have not had a workshop with Peter T., I know of his incredible body of work and admire his brilliance. How wonderful to be inspired by such an exemplar. Your work is a true reflection of your inspiration. Fantastic!

This is beautiful! I love the pencil also. It can be so dynamic and subtle almost at the same time.
