Caltrain Sketch 02/04/09

For this one I copied some Vaseline ad (along these lines) from a magazine using one of my Christmas pencils, a Daler Rowney "Sanguine Sketching" pencil. Thought it would be interesting with skin tones. (It was completed on a very bumpy Baby Bullet between San Jose and San Francisco.)

Can anyone tell me what this ruddy pencil is ordinarily used for?
