{ Pencil Toppers }

Yes. The image is not photoshopped this old dude actually spends years (yes, I said YEARS!) carving away wood + lead to make pencil point sculptures. Some of the detailing on these are pretty incredible! But not every pencil he touches is a masterpiece... he still keeps the broken lead and refers to it as the cemetary... "I have quite a few broken pieces so I decided to glue them on pins and into styrofoam for a display case. People might think it's weird I keep them but they're still interesting. I worked on them for months so they might be dead now but at one point I gave them life" {via}
