Go Go Gadget Sharpie!

Well folks, it’s finally happened: mechanical pencils and markers are breeding. What’s next, paperclip/staple orgies? NOT IN MY DESK DRAWER! Haha, like I have a desk!

All The Write Stuff
For most of us pencil is just a tool used for painting, drawing, or updating checkbooks. But in the hands of Dalton, a Brazilian-born artist who lives in Bridgeport, these ordinary pencils turn into miniature sculptures. He carves sculptures out of the tips of pencils using sewing needle and razor blade. Apart from these he needs very bright light, and there is no use of a magnifying glass in creation of these artistic works.

Smencils – Gourmet Scented Pencils Made With Rolled Newspaper



Smell and Draw

On one hand, I really like that these Smencils are made from sheets of recycled newspaper tightly rolled around a #2 graphite core. Not only do they sharpen like a regular pencil, but you also get to see the different layers of newsprint as you grind them down, kind of like the rings on a tree. However, why they felt the need to then soak the pencils in gourmet liquid scents is beyond me. (Supposedly made by an award winning fragrance company.) The Smencils are available in packs of 10 (packaged in separate freshness tubes) and each one has a different scent including bubble gum, cinnamon, popcorn, grape, cotton candy, very berry, chocolate, orange, watermelon and rootbeer.
