    Just wondering what you guys use to draw with. I use a mechanical pencil for first sketch (a 0.7mm Faber-Castell with no-name leads). Then I ink it using felt-tips, one .2 and one about .3 or .4 I think. (They're the only black ink pens I could find in my house.) I either shade in greyscale using various pencils (2B, B, HB, H, 2H and 6B) or I use coloured pencils. I have a couple of Derwents left from when I was seven, some Crayolas, some WH Smiths (Italian brand, very good) and some other things like Alligators. So what do you use?

    "One reason why mathematics enjoys special esteem, above all other sciences, is that its laws are absolutely certain and indisputable, while those of other sciences are to some extent debatable and in constant danger of being overthrown by newly discovered facts."
    Albert Einstein

    "What science can there be more noble, more excellent, more useful for men, more admirably high and demonstrative than mathematics."
    Benjamin Franklin

    "Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty – a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of paintings or music, yet sublimely pure and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show."
    Bertrand Russell
