I figure many in life reach for pencils, if they can get there.

Pencils can make art, given a human, but so can many other modes/

I figure posts of art made by with pencils will blossom.

Even I did that.

Speak up about pencil drawings you love.

@ossobuco,
One of my favorite print artists was Kathe Kollwitz. Here are some of her pencil and charcoal works
https://perspectivaonline.com.br/2015/05/07/kathe-kollwitz/

Pencil work can achieve the feelings that the artist is trying to put forward. You can easily omit or over state a section of your work to make the viewer "get it"

She was the master at " achieving it"

Her life was an example of why artists of all kinds need a little suffering to achieve greatness.

@farmerman,
I'm an ordinary american with access to pencils, but of course some don't have it.

Which brings up pencil sharpeners, wonderful inventions.

Kollwitz, forever.

@ossobuco,
I must admit I am not much for pencil drawings, not at all like K├Ąthe Kollwitz
far too sad for me.

Now when coloring books for grown ups have become in fashion the factories can hardly keep up with the demand

@Lordyaswas,
they had a pencil delivery truck? Did they deliver your pencils to ones doorstep?
How convenient.

Im thinking of starting up a PRINTER CARTRIDGE drone delivery service.

@ossobuco,
I do doodle quite a lot.

I prefer black ink pens to pencils, but am still using (and hence sharpening.... oh joy) pencils.

@farmerman,
"they had a pencil delivery truck? "

They used to be everywhere once upon a time, but then they amalgamated it all with the milkmen in order to cut costs.

"Morning Mrs Jones, here are your two full cream as ordered, and the 2B graphite you wanted for the shading on that drawing you've been working on."

@Olivier5,
I have a pencil sharpener in every room I think. Just a small old fashioned.

I bought an electric pencil sharpener about 10 years ago at a garage sale. I use it all the time.

My father was an artist and used pencils on vellum. My job was to keep his pencils sharpened. He used a rubber eraser.

I love #2 pencils with a good eraser.

Our community offers classes on Zentagle - sophisticated doodling, I call it.

@ossobuco,
Yeah you ever see that sponge-bob episode? A guy in a boat drops a pencil into the ocean ... sponge-bob finds it and everything he draws comes alive. But as a result there is an evil sponge-bob drawn and the evil sponge-bob grabs the pencil..

bikini bottom is never the same.

@saab,
I have one in my drawer right now, the metalic type that gives a faint electric current when you put your tongue on the blade (because of the two different metals used for the body and for the blade). "Made in Germany" by KUM. Plastic ones are not so sturdy.

@Olivier5,
so back then you were trying to become a sharp tongued boy eh?

As my dad would say
"Why the hell did it occur to you to put your tongue on the flagpole in the middle of a snowstorm"?

@farmerman,
Ha ha ha! Good one.

You guys never tried that? Put the tip of your tongue across the two parts (blade and body) and the difference in alloys will generate a tiny tiny electric flow.

@Olivier5,
Did it - no elctric flow, just a cold tongue
