There are still a few homegrown things that come from the USA, and Clarence Pencilman Pointer is one of them. Hailing directly from Hillsboro, Alabama this man makes a pencil do on paper what Monet makes a brush do onto canvas. He makes it dance. He makes the pencil sing and gives it a voice. He makes it draw. His family and friends felt that Pointer was truly talent worth nurturing. They offered their support by purchasing drawing materials, and anything needed to help him continue to create. Gifted at an early age with the ability to see lines, shapes and figures sight unseen Pointer has taken that gift and now sharing it globally. He says the tools needed for any artist and drawer is to make sure that the materials used for drawing are of quality. A noticeable difference in different lead types is always a good thing to have in mind when approaching certain subjects as well and the more practice the better. He says that only in practicing can one become a master at one’s craft. An Airforce veteran having served in Okinawa he met a master Japanese artist who encouraged him to put more focused energy into each project. Well, it didn’t take long after that chance meeting for Pointer to excel and win several awards in local art contests and soon skyrocket to international acclaim.
Accredited with a vast number of work and a client roster full of VIP’s Pointer upgrades the art of drawing to a level of physical, spiritual, and mental clarity that one rarely experiences in a daily life. His drawings are unbelievably realistic and are out of this world visually.
Clarence Pointer is not just a man with a pencil, he possesses abilities and talent that although culminated over years of practice; were there from birth. When asked can persons having no natural talent as an artist and being trained, Pointer says, you either got it or you don’t. If one doesn’t have the passion for the craft, then the challenge to create is absent.
His powerful sense of caring and to be a man who listens to his heart is unmatched. He seems to hold deeply within an enormous amount of pride and dignity for his culture and for all people that can clearly be seen in his large body of work. If that doesn’t make for a double special person, with a pencil and paper in his hand marked with two hearts in the middle, then what does.
