A New Twist on Creating Art with Pencils

You know those metal figurines used to navigate the board in Monopoly? Now imagine those pieces, but smaller. And instead of being made of metal and mass-produced via mold, theyre hand-carved from an infinitely softer substance…on the tiny tip of a pencil. That is what artist and carpenter Dalton Ghetti has spent 25 years of his life creating. Green Diary picked up on Ghetti and his fascinating art, which he creates by working with various tools to carve miniature sculptures on the graphite tips of used pencils. Needless to say: Its way more impressive than those uninspired hacks at Parker Brothers.
