The story of Blackwing pencils began in the 1930s, and since then, some of the world’s most legendary, award-winning artists have used them. Their cult following included John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Tunes characters. According to animation historian Charles Soloman, there’s even a Disney animator who was buried with his Blackwing. Blackwing pencils have a long heritage of providing not just a unique graphite pencil but an exceptional pencil experience for makers of all types.
