More From The Beanworld Archives!

Ink and colored pencil on cheap 8 1/2" x 11" photocopy paper.

This drawing is from the late '70's while I was still struggling with finding the right aesthetic for Beanworld. I made a lot of drawings using rapidograph and Prismacolor pencils. This is a rather typical piece from that time. The paper hasn't aged particularly well, that is if one desires a crisp white color under the pencils. However, because the drawing has been kept in a cool, dry place for the last thirty some years--the paper has a very subtle peachy cast to it that really brings out the shading of the pencils.
