Sculptor and builder of things Bobby Duke decided to do something that serves no purpose but to prove that it could be done, as he bought a pack of pencils, then carved a tiny pencil from it’s wood, and then an even tinier pencil from the lead of the tiny pencil./theawesomer

It’s the pencil version of Inception but it’s much easier to follow.If anything, this piece proves that Duke has far more patience than the rest of us, because as I recall from my grade school days, pencils are the most frail writing tool humanity’s ever created.

Although his work looks magical and gravity-defying, his process is actually fairly straightforward.Even just holding one wrong can cause the tip to snap off, so I’m flabbergasted that Duke was able to carve this piece and keep his sanity.
