On that date the environmental campaigners are encouraging people to switch their lights off from 20:30 in support of future sustainability, with The Drum running each poster on the morning of its release.

Illustrator Mr Guil wanted to create a poster that inspired people to use things up to the very end - and so, logically, he did so by using a pencil right to the end.

"I have always wondered why people don’t use pencils to the very end," he said. "This piece, made with one pencil, is influenced by the visual image of pencils revolving around my creatures combined with abstract forms and structures.

"I find it interesting to observe how the pencils diminishing size can affect the line and shapes of a drawing. Imposing alterations to the hand movement. Therefore contributing to the creative process of the pencil men eating pencils; men on pencil skies, with pencil nose and pencil tattoos."
