Wall Art – The Secret Life of the Pencil

Posted on Dec 11, 2015 by

The Secret Life Of The Pencil is a unique charity project for Children In Crisis conceived by product designer Alex Hammond and photographer Mike Tinney. “The humble pencil is found where most of mankind’s greatest achievements begin,” they explain.

A growing collection of over 50 hyper-real photographs captures the whittled, chewed and sharpened scribblers of some of the world’s most respected creatives, from designers Tom Dixon and Paul Smith to court artist Julia Quenzler. Each is as individual as its owner. These pencils don’t need pushing, they’re the perfect prints for a sharper study.
