So there's been quite a number of question about a few things I use and how I do what I do. Instead of responding individually, I want to answer what I can in one place so here goes:
Q: What kind of pencil are you using?
A: My favorite is the Staedtler Mars Technico lead holder and I have 4H (for light sketching) and 4B leads (to darken and finalize the layout)
Q: How do you sharpen your leads?
A: Staedtler lead pointer
Q: What kind of paper do you use?
A: I love smooth paper more than textured ones. For rough sketches, I use regular bond paper but for finalizing, I use at least 120gsm either Clairefontaine or Strathmore.
Q: How kind of paper do you use for tracing?
A: Tracing paper or I use lightpad when I need to trace a project on paper.
If you have other questions you need to ask, just ask away and I'll respond when I can. #AMAwithmyedeleon
