Pencil carving is not a new thing any more. We have been featuring many of stunning sculptures carved out of pencil on our site. However, we have to introduce you the “Elephant Walk” by Cindy Chinn to you otherwise we won’t call ourselves a good web explorer and digger. Said as the most elaborate design by Chinn, the Elephant Walk for Epiphany Elephant Museum, has a whole family of elephants across the Serengeti carved out of pencils. The whole project took a few days and here is the detail description from Chinn “Using the wood of a pencil I carved the tree tops, and the trunks are made from the graphite lead. Then I scored the wood of the pencil to create the look of grass. Elephants are carved out of different pencils and the last, I put them together.” Get impressed by Chinn’s work? Find more details on her site or visit her etsy page to order a pencil sculpture as your collectible.
Not sure since when, pencil tip carving has become a trend. We have featured many amazing works about pencil tip sculpture and today we will introduce you another talented artist Jasenko Đorđević who has developed an incredible craft carving intricate sculptures from this unconventional material. Using X-acto knife and tiny chisel, the Bosnian artist creates their overall form, implies texture, and even carves tiny words into the thin stick of graphite. And the result is stunning. It is really impressive to see Đorđević transforms the tips of pencils into small works of art, such as flowers, animals, and portraits, all of which have to be magnified to fully appreciate the minute details.
It looks like pencil is not only drawing tools any more since more and more artists choose it as their art canvas. We have featured many creative pencil carving works on our site and today we will bring you another set of stunning pencil tip sculptures by Salavat Fidai.

Star Wars notables Darth Vader and master Yoda make appearances, so does Bart Simpson, as well as such 3D animated characters like Rango and Wall-E. Like Fidai’s work?

As a loyal fan of Ben Heine’s “Pencil vs. Camera” series, we have been featuring many creative works from Ben Heine on the site. Today we are to present you a special collection – 3D Pencil Drawing from Ben. Using a technique called anamorphosis, Ben successfully brings new dimensions to the flat surface only with normal pencil and huge blank sheet. These mind-bending works of art have been so cleverly constructed that allow the artist himself step inside the picture and interact with landscape, animals or something unusual like gun. Take a look at these awesome work and we also include some progressive photos of how Ben created those drawing.
