02: What’s in my graphite toolkit?

Mike recovers from an injury, finds his creative type is that of “thinker” and signs up for the Adobe Photoshop for iOS beta. He also goes through everything in his graphite toolkit from paper to pencil and all the accessories in between dropping a few tips along the way. As always, a little homework at the end 🙂
