JB said: I wonder if that Max Turner piece was an exercise in not lifting the charcoal stick off the paper.

Interesting thought!

By the way, do you (or did you) sometimes indulge yourself in those kind of exercises, Mr. Byrne?

Every since I was a wee lad I've been fascinated by this concept. It began with my paternal grandfather showing me how to draw an open envelope with a single line, and it persists to this day in parts of drawings where I will try to lay down as much as possible without lifting the tool from the paper.

From a John Bolton portfolio... I love the texture of the hood in white dots!

There's classic DC copy placement on that Deadman piece. An acre of empty space to the left, but the caption has to juuuuuust touch Deadman's head.

Speaking about not lifting your pen...while I am sure he lifted his pen a few times to load ink, this image is of a continuous spiral, thickening and thinning to flesh out the image. I have admired Jake Weidmann's work for a while and even have one of his smaller works. He incorporates calligraphy or calligraphy techniques into his works.

That would invalidate his title.
