Marc Davis' pencil

Quite recently, Federico Fiecconi invited me to doodle with Marc Davis' (MARC DAVIS!) own original mechanical pencil! The outcome was this odd little piece of sketch that doesn't have any purpose other than to smash some really fast lines on the paper and see what happens. Anyways, back at my desk, I started refining and preparing the level for detailing a little, just for the fun of it.


  1. That's a kick using his pencil. What you did with it is great. Your work is always topnotch and I think if Marc Davis were around he would agree.

  2. Do you illustrate children's books? I'm currently looking for one and I love the way you create.

    1. Occasionally, yes. Thanks for the nice feedback.
