In Wim Wender's magnificent film, Wings of Desire, Peter Falk (who plays himself), at
one point rhapsodizes on the immediacy of life as illustrated by the marks created with
his pencil. For the artist, the pencil is the intermediary, the conduit between eye and
coordinated vision. Over the years, I have amassed a collection of pencils that were
either intrinsically intriguing or that suggested a specific purpose. I doubt that many
of them would be especially prized by bonafide pencil-collectors;  no, this display is
pretty-much self-indulgent. I do however, appreciate the possibility of a story told on
as well as by-means-of these implements, which is I suppose, what advertising-pencils
are about. And, it will possibly come as no surprise (assuming that you've seen my
otherwork), that I just liked the idea of these long thin scans of pencils linked to
their itemization. Something could also be made of the dwindling availability of
varieties of drawing implements over the years.
