Pencil: Do More Art

Dundee Contemporary Arts



The third book in the popular Do More Art series, Pencil shows how the simplest of writing tools can be the key to an entire universe of artistic expression. From simple doodling and mark-making to meticulously built-up works of art, a piece of graphite is all that is needed to create whole new worlds.

In this hardcover book, Selwyn Leamy and Eve Blackwood explore the many different ways the pencil can be used: from hatching and smudging to frottage and even collage. Each technique is clearly explained with easy-to-follow instructions and illustrated with works by contemporary pencil practitioners, demonstrating once and for all that the pencil really is mightier than the pen.
