We’re celebrating all things USA this month and when it comes to office supplies, nothing is more classic than a box of Crayola crayons. I remember getting a box of crayons before my first marble cover notebook. 
 
Before Reebok Freestyles, breaking out a brand new box of crayons was the shit. The perfectly shaped point, the beautiful unscuffed wrapper… everytime I tore a bit of wrapper, I cried inside. 
 
Maybe if I had the genius spark to turn my crayons into works of art, well… maybe I would of saved a lot of tears from being shed. Who knows. Pete Goldlust’s Carved Crayons makes me wanna rush out and buy a box of crayons to bust out some magic!

Crazy cool vessels made of pencils from Finnish designer Tuomas Markunpoika. Always blown away when someone can take a pencil, a daily diet good, and transform it into something far from basic.

When was the last time you looked at a chunk of wood and was like… I’m gonna carve a stash of office supplies out of you? Like never? Thank goodness Camilla Barnard did because her office supply sculptures are super rad!!

Kyle Bean is rad. He’s a master of creating awesome with daily-diet goods. We’ve posted about his map of the London Underground made from drinking straws. We’ve posted about his portraits made of pencil shavings. And now this?!! A 2-foot lion sculpture made of shredded hotel expense receipts? Why didn’t we think of this?! We definitely have enough expense reports!

Have you ever looked at a roll of electrical tape and thought to yourself… I’m gonna carve a map out of you. Neither have we. But Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki did. The result is AMAZING!

An animal trophy head that we can totally hang with! Need this Luciana Novos polar bear head.

 

We got 5 pins on our RAH HQ Pinterest board. 2 are animal trophy heads. What does this mean?

Two things we love - fashion and Nick Cave. So this… this is awesome. Fall fashion paired with Nick Cave sculptures.

An all-time favorite artist, Canadian Brian Jungen transforms ordinary objects into traditional First Nations symbols. Blown away by his amazing Prototypes for New Understanding series of West Coast Aboriginal masks made entirely of Air Jordons. Newer pieces involve golf bags, large scale industrial waste bins, and baseball gloves.
