New site for my "Other" Black and White Pencil Drawings


I just created a new website to help spread the word about my "other" pencil drawings! As much of my pencilplace.com site is dedicated to, and optimized for, horse drawings and dog drawings, I thought it might be a good idea to create a separate, smaller site to make mention of my "other" drawing creations.

These drawings include historic towns & buildings, vintage aviation (biplanes) and vintage automotive artwork. The new site is called BlackandWhitePencilDrawings.com. Several of these pieces were commissions for towns or businesses. Other pieces were original creations of my own inspirations.

I currently have several sample pencil drawings posted on the site, including the National First Ladies Library in Canton, Ohio - a drawing which the Library now uses for its promotional items in the gift store. Other drawings include: The Old Stage Coach Inn from Brecksville, Ohio, vintage Corvette drawings, and vintage biplanes such as the Stearman and Waco models.

Pencil Drawing of "Ben" - Pet Memorial Portrait


My latest pet portrait is a pencil drawing of a dog known as "Ben." Big Ben crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this year, and his owner's kind friend decided that a pencil portrait would make a lovely memorial. Ben was a delightful subject, and I can tell he will surely be greatly missed.
