Fave Drawing Tool Poll Results

The very unscientific Mike Lynch Cartoons poll has now closed and the winner of the "What's Your Fave Drawing Tool" poll is ...


Wow! Silly little pencil! Pencil wins! Around of applaues for the wooden shaft containing lead, OK? OK!

Now, I guess the only question is: is it HB, #2, Faber Castell, Eberhard Faber, mechanical, etc. Do you sharpen it with a knife (I do) or one of those whirring electric sharpeners or one like we used to have in grade school that's attached to the wall with the different width telephone dial thingy on the side, etc.

Pen (Sakura, Pigma, etc.) and Pen and Ink were tied for second most popular.

Following closed behind is the 21st century paperless Wacom Tablet. I wonder if we did the poll the year from now if Wacom would come in second?

The loser, receiving the fewest votes of all favorite drawing tools, was toothpick dipped in ink, followed by Conte Crayon and fingerpaints.

What's nice is that most people still prefer one of the most humblest and cheapest of tools: a pencil.

Thanks to all who participated!
