Awesome art on a pencil tip

S forwarded me this article from oddstuffmagazine.com about graphite artist Dalton Ghetti.   According to the article, Ghetti refuses to use a magnifying glass and only uses 3 tools to orchestrate his art-a razor blade, a sewing needle, and a sculpting knife.  You really need to check out the article to see more of his amazing pieces, but these are my faves.

From this:

This one's for you, Kaleena J!

Isn't that amazing?  He doesn't sell his pieces either, he just gives them to friends.  Maybe he would like to be friends with me...i'll gladly take one of these puppies off his hands!

I'm linking this to favorite things Friday @ the hills are livin' and the inspired room b/c people need to see this good stuff!
