Illustrations made for the 5th edition of the Encontro Nacional de Ilustração (5th National Illustrators Meeting) collective exhibit.
The 2012 edition theme was Lápis (Pencil), and I had to do two illustrations about it. I thought about what the pencil means to me.
It’s a way of searching ideas, so I used a compass and replaced the metal piece with a pencil.
It’s also something that makes me stronger and more powerful that my physical self allows me. With paper and pencil the limits are our imagination and skills.
Made with brush, ecoline and ink on paper.
