Here at Pencils.com we are pleased to introduce Take 1 of our newly established Blackwing Project. The Blackwing Project is a new collaboration with artists, writers, musicians and fans of the Blackwing pencil to share creative inspiration enabled by or associated with our new Palomino Blackwing pencil. The goal is to produce a series of fun visuals and videos demonstrating art, music, photography, video content, prose and/or poetry associated with the Blackwing pencil.
Take 1 is more properly titled "The Blackwing is Back" and is just an initial effort I put together with my own limited skills in PowerPoint and Movie Maker with some of artistic contributions we have available today from several of our devoted fans (see credits & links below). I hope you enjoy this first effort which is more of a Palomino Blackwing advertisement focused on promoting the fact that we've now launched sales, some of the most popular uses of the pencils, a few of the famous Blackwing users throughout time and that the product is available for purchase at the Pencils.com store. Future editions will be much more completely devoted to artistic creativity of our Palomino Blackwing fans.
Special thanks to the following artistic and photographic contributors:
Diane Wright, Pencils.com Featured Artist
Lisa Laughy, Ninth Wave Designs
John Celestri, Grace Animation Studios
Sean Malone, The Blackwing Pages
Joey Gilbreath, art student
And particularly to my friend and talented musician Christian Tamburr and the CT Trio for sharing his original composition "Blues for Chu" and his great talent on the vibes. I'm just sorry we didn't have enough content to support playing the whole number in this video.
The Blackwing Project videos will be broadcast through our new Pencilscom YouTube Channel as well as our Pencils.com What's New blog, The Pencil Page on FaceBook, our Twitter feed, etc. Full creative credit for contributions of each individual will be acknowledged with appropriate links to artist websites where appropriate. If you are interested in participating in the Blackwing Project and gaining a broader audience for your work please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com to share your interest, ideas and creative contributions.
