Pencil Art

Mom and I both got sick... Yet, we still had to be bad girls and go out... For a good reason though! We didn't want to miss the last day of the Pencil Art Exhibition at LCX by Dalton Ghetti. This guy has got some amazing skills and patience! He sculpted on pencils out of razor blades, sewing needles and a sculpting knife!!! My mom and I were both in awe seeing his art. What a wicked carpenter... I've never seen anything quite like this! 
You've gotta see the details of these.. so click on the pictures to enlarge!! 
My favorite one has got to be this Elvis!
his tools.
Last but not least, I've gotta show you the HK skyline once again. It's the best in the world in my humblest opinion. I know I'm a bit biased but I just can't get enough of it! I'm gonna be hibernating at home for the next couple days and hopefully get rid of my stupid cold. 

Have a great rest of the weekend my dears!

  6. Whoa...the pencil exhibit looks incredible. It seems like it'd be such a weird idea, an exhibit on pencils, but after seeing the photos you posted, I wish I could see the exhibit in person! So very cool.

    I love the outfit you're wearing. The jacket is great-you've got such good taste!
