This is yet another Paste finding for me: pencil tip graphite artist Dalton Ghetti! Since first seeing this, I have discovered (unsurprisingly) that he is the subject of a lotta visual arts related blog posts. Well good for him! Here’s another one, Mr. Ghetti!
I read that he takes several years to do each sculpture, the pencils are occasionally put on display but are not for sale, and that he is a quiet, zen sort of guy. That makes sense to me… I wish I could find a better picture of the giraffe.
