Roll Out the Pencils

This pencil urchin sure caught my eye. Beautiful isn't it? There's something about the colours and possibly the sharpened pencil.

Jennifer Maestre makes some unusual sculptures out of pencils. Her pieces on Etsy are definite conversation starters too.

And Quentin Blake, whose illustration in Roald Dahl's books we are likely to be familiar with, has something similar in his studio too. Check out this interview.

Hmm... i don't know about creating colour pencil urchin sculptures but i definitely have a liking for having all the colour pencils in my classroom sharpened to a point ... feels and looks so good! :)
