For some reason, I have always considered colored pencils kind of a crappy medium. It may just be because I never had really nice ones. To me they always just seemed like a watered down version of pastel chalk for people with poor dexterity. All of those notions are, of course, totally silly and tongue in cheek. But I have to say that seeing Kate Powell‘s illustrations using colored pencils has turned me into a believer. Check out her Tumblr and be blown away.
