God Egg

A title? A work in…pencil?! It’s powerful and rare to feel successful in newness, so I’m going to revel just a little.

A mechanical pencil isn’t too different from a pen, not until you start trying to draw and the line feels totally wrong at first.

I had to figure out a way to work with something thinner but also softer, while being varying in tone based on pressure. With a pen, being bold feels easier and the directness of the ink worked to make the art I feel represents me.

With a pencil, being bold needed to be more decisive. I attempted to escape the “refined” details such thin lead is good at producing, but that couldn’t be further from what I’m like. However, mixing thick lines with thinner details changed my way of thinking about creation.

“God Egg” is my own heart’s creation and using the new medium made me feel stronger about my work. This newness has turned bountiful.
