BLACKWING

Blackwing Woody Guthrie Volume 223 Pencil Set

 

The Blackwing 223 is a tribute to Woody Guthrie and his immutable optimism. Each pencil features a design inspired by This Land’s “ribbon of highway,” “endless skyway” and “golden valley.” Woody is often depicted in sepia tones reminiscent of the Dust Bowl, but his artistic palette extended much further. He filled composition notebooks and day planners with sketches, poems and paintings on his countless journeys. His art was playful and vibrant, despite its often gritty content. He described his fusion of old compositions and new ideas as a mashup of “what is” and “what could be.” Woody believed we could be better, and used his creations to inspire people to believe the same. The matte black ferrule and earth-toned eraser are a nod to the many miles Woody traveled. Blackwing used their balanced graphite formulation that works well for both writing and sketching.
