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!
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!
