This work was drawn with charcoal and graphite pencils on acid-free drawing paper. In order to secure the applied layers and to keep smudging minimal, the finished work has been lightly sprayed with a fixative.  However, drawings should never be directly touched.  They are best kept under a matted, glass-protected frame and away from high humidity, direct sunlight, or extreme heat.
