Johnson, a resident of Deposit, New York, prefers to capture his favorite subjects â the white-tailed deer, trout, turkeys, hunting dogs and waterfowl â in graphite powder. "The contrast of black and white appeals to me," says Cole. "I enjoy the challenge of making a drawing come to life based solely on tonal value."
