Pencilbrush is the Love Child of the Mechanical Pencil and a Paint Brush

The Pencilbrush is a unique drawing tool for the avid artist or doodler that allows you to do quick and easy shading effects. It’s made of light weight aluminum and can accommodate a row of individual graphite leads sizes such as 0.5mm, 0.7mm, 0.9mm and 1.3mm. A package of 0.9mm leads are included with the drawing tool. Depending on the way you hold the Pencilbrush, it will help you draw a sharp line or a wide shaded band. If you check the Pencilbrush site, you can see a gallery of impressive drawings that were made with this tool. The Pencilbrush is available in Black or Silver and is priced at $35.

    hmm, there was a special ed kid at my high school long long ago that used to draw amazing flowers and plants with a tool just like this. Only he used the lead by wrapping them in masking tape. I remember the teacher trying to find him other pencils and charcoals to draw with, he only wanted the wrapped leads in tape. I wonder what happened to him, this would be the perfect tool for him.

    wow. impressive demos.

    2 things that would bother me…
    1. if i dropped it and the leads snapped;
    2. between shading, and fine line-work- i’m sure that nice angled edge will wear unevenly?
