Amazing Ester! Crayons are such an underrated medium--most people think they're just kid's stuff, but this portrait is a prime example of just the opposite.

thanks Steve :) super nice of you to say. I find it really amazing what some of the artists in the past were able to do with blunt nubs of crayon and chalk too. I recently made some of my own charcoal, and it is really difficult stuff to use. We've got it made as far as art materials go in our day and age. Pretty lucky I think.
