Each drawing is created using only pencils of varying hardness, within the 2H to 8B range. Photographic references are used, and each piece can take up to 50 hours to complete. Shown at left, the drawing is worked from north to south, and west to east to minimize smearing from the drawing hand resting on the paper.
