I opened an empty Paintshop image, then copied each pencil one at a time. I did think of filling in the background somehow, but I liked the cut-from-the-paper look I ended up with.

I saw some of these last week at a museum. They are really cool IRL.

Thanks for putting this up! Mr. Ghetti was featured on the MAKE blog three weeks ago, and I forgot to bounce it over here. Great that he got picked up by the Times!

My father sent me some photos initially, part of ongoing discussions we have. I didn't notice the MAKE entry, but I also noticed Boing Boing had a recent article.

Definitely shows that even the most sundry items are a universe of possibility.

Haha I almost posted this topic when I ran across it last week. :) I tried carving on the lead of a pencil and it turned out pretty good. :)
