Marta Altés’ Pencil Shavings

Marta Altés is a children’s book illustrator from Barcelona who is based in London. I was completely charmed by her pencil shavings sketches when I saw them for the first time. I would not have thought to incorporate No 2 scraps into drawings—it’s very clever! Here’s a few of my favorites from her website:

The way she scattered the scraps here is brilliant! I almost wish I could see the bull.

The butterfly and flower are adorable as well.

We thought it would be a fun to add something sweet to our drawings too, so we’re suggesting you give Lollygadoodling a try.
