Artist David Poppie makes sculptural artworks using objects such as colored pencils, cassette tapes, matchbooks and tea bags. These pieces above are some of my favorites but there’s much more in his gallery.
Update: It turns out the cassette tape sculptures above were actually a collaboration between David Poppie and artist Roger Sayre. We regret the omission!
UK artist and designer Kyle Bean (previously here and here) has created these lovely pencil shaving portraits for contributors to the Wallpaper Handmade issue. Everything this guy does turns to awesome.
I’m a sucker for huge signs made with pencils, and this work from Spagnola & Associates is no exception. Via their web site:
In 2011 Spagnola & Associates faced the challenge of designing their new office space. They created a 20′ wide dimensional wall to stimulate ideas and complete the office. 2,804 pencils were hammered into pre-drilled holes in the panels.
The Adapter was designed by Felix Ng, the art director at SILNT and is available at the FARM Online Store (which has more cool stuff that my mind is able to comprehend this early in the morning).
Book cover design by Sean Yendrys for Soliloquies Anthology, the literary journal of Concordia University, which features fiction and poetry from writers all across Canada. If you like this, also check out the reception desk at W+K Delhi.
The reception desk at W+K Delhi. What would you spell with an extra 23,000 pencils? (via quips)
