These artists don't use pencils as tools to create art. They just turn the pencils themselves into art.
Hopefully, you will be as impressed as we are by the level of detail and craftsmanship that went into these pieces.
(We're only using one example from each artist so as to not infringe on their work. If you want to see the complete collections, please visit their web pages.)
