Pencil Bench

October 18, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The pencil bench was created by UK firm Boex for D&AD and consists of 1,600 individual pencils that can be removed for use if needed. Although this project was completed in 2007, I felt it deserved to be amongst Colossal’s growing collection of pencil-related posts. (via design milk)

Dead Sexy Pencil Highlighters

September 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

That’s right, I said it: these are some sexy pencils. These yellow Eco Highlighters use no ink solvents, no volatile organic compounds and are biodegradable. Available from the fine folks at aptly named Stubby Pencil Studio. More back-to-school goodness over on CMYBacon.

Although these appear to have been around for a bit, they’re certainly new to me. These pencil set illustrations were created by Melbourne-based artist Ghostpatrol and you can see the entire series of over 40 illustrations here. (via upon a fold)

Split Pencil and Cassette Sculptures by David Poppie

August 2, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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.

Update: It turns out the cassette tape sculptures above were actually a collaboration between David Poppie and artist Roger Sayre. We regret the omission!

Good Design Lasts

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.
