Charles Laveso

Charles developed a love for art as a child after creating a portrait drawing, from then on his life would no longer be the same. Charles does an excellent job with realistic drawings, which he specializes in. He has given lectures in several states in Brazil and other countries, taking his knowledge to the world! On Instagram, he shares his philosophy of life and his work, such as his detailed drawing process. It is possible to find beautiful art, which resembles photographs. His work requires exact precision due to the details, and for this he uses Pentel technical mechanical pencils such as the Graphgear 500, 1000 and Lapiseira Smash, always accompanied by our erasers and graphites. Welcome to the team Charles! ❤️



"When I was 8 years old I got my first mechanical pencil. 
Yes, it was a Pentel, but I didn't even know what it meant.
So my father sat next to me and said: "See son, a customer left this mechanical pencil in my shoe store and said I could keep it for myself or give it as a gift. I'll leave it up to you, but this isn't an ordinary mechanical pencil, it's an artist's mechanical pencil! So you must be very careful with her, understand?"

... My eyes lit up(...)
This fact marked my life, because every time I knelt on the edge of our old sofa and used that mechanical pencil to draw my heroes, I felt like a real artist!
More than 30 years have passed and this feeling has not changed, The difference is that today my drawings came out of that boy's room and projected my art into the world.

Today, I am an ambassador for the Pentel brand, however, I still don't know if I was the one who chose it or did she chose me to tell this story!
