nifty pencil shavings

nifty pencil shavings

Sam Winston’s pencil shavings image is visual poetry. I’m not sure if it’s an actual pencil drawing (which would be mad crazy) or if it’s a photograph (or scan) of pencil shavings.

The Wheaton Public Library was selling this old VHS tape a few weeks ago. It’s the orangeyiest orange I’ve ever seen on a video cassette. I kinda wish I bought it, tore it apart and used it as a canvas for a drawing/painting.
