Notes from the Drawing Board: Drawing with Conté crayons

Published on: 19 Mai 2014 Author: Chris Riddell

I've been drawing with a soft pastel called a Conté crayon and loving the fluid smokey line and sense of freedom it gives.

I used to draw with charcoal all the time but gave it up as impractical when I began working as an illustrator. Using Conté crayon is like discovering an old friend.
