Hello and Welcome, DJ!
Gotta first name??
Have you already grouted your tile? If not, some pencil marks will go away during the process, and if it doesn't, you can rub hard with wet grout packed on one corner of your sponge till it does. If you've already grouted, try using a Scotchbrite pad or similar with water. Be careful with colored pads and your grout.

Hello DJ,
I've had the best luck using non-sanded grout (to match the color of the tile) to use as a rubbing compound. If you use your normal grout, and it isn't a match to the body of the tile, the pigment will embed in the cracks and leave you discolored areas.
Crackle-glazed tile should always be sealed prior to grouting.
