Talking sponges, a family from Springfield and even diabolical/scheming canines, are all part of our own lexicon all in part to animation. It has given us endless memorable characters within a visual storytelling medium that is only bound by the limits of our imagination. But it continues to give us infinite possibilities in our dreams.
The Blackwing Volume 7 is a tribute to animation and the incredible stories this medium allows us to share. Each 12 pack of Balanced pencils comes with six unique designs that when stacked side by side and viewed through the included viewfinder, the pencils combine to become a seven frame “picket fence animation” of Chuck Jones’ iconic Wile E. Coyote.
And for those of you not familiar with Mr. Jones' connection to Blackwing, this limited edition is a suggestive nod to (in our opinion) one of the founding fans of this incredible brand. Maybe there's a fan you know that has an original Chuck Jones Blackwing 602 hidden in a drawer...maybe there's a hidden artist there too.
