Drawing on our ever-changing social scene and diverse contemporary culture, Used Pencil uses a fine blend of intelligent thinking, creative wizardry and some common sense to create images that reflect the modern world. Pencil emphasizes beauty, highlights predicament and pokes fun at humans and their strange habits. Pencil says “abstract forms transcend through line and I delicately select compositions to create pieces that grace the streets, leave a distinct mark on found objects and decorate paper in a stylized way.”
