Blackwing Pages ~ For Fans of the Genuine Blackwing 602


Sean Malone is an American musician and a well-known one at that; fans of experimental metal will recognize him from his times as the bassist of Cynic. The artist is actually a professor of music. 


In December of 2012, Sean visited Faber-Castell in Stein Germany, but not to give a concert in the castle: Sean writes a professional blog about his two favorite pencil stars, one being the Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602, produced in the U.S. until 1998. The pencil was especially popular among musicians, writers and artists.


In the "Blackwing Pages" he has impressively traced the history of the legendary Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602. 


Thank you Sean.
