I’ve always been a terrible drawer. When I was working toward my art major in college, drawing was my Achilles’ heel. Thankfully, I figured that out pretty quickly and moved on to other areas, but I’ve maintained a deep and abiding love of artists who work well with simple pencil and paper. These beautiful pencil drawings were done by artist Zoë Tilley. Working with graphite pencil, Zoë draws pictures of butterflies, moths, rabbits and cats that have a dreamily soft and smoky feel to them. Zoë just opened an Etsy shop where you can buy prints of her work, as well as a few originals. Most of them feature adorable tiny animals, so if you’re looking for new animal art for your home, click here to check out Zoë’s work online and shop (prices range from $12–$40). xo, grace

I’m late responding, but it’s really fun to read these comments about my work – thank you all. Barbara, no colored pencils in these – just graphite art pencils. Looking forward to experimenting with some color work this winter, though. Design Sponge… thank you:)
