Maybe you guys can help me…a few years back I went to the Johannesburg Art Festival and saw giant pencils |(like the ones below) and erasers for sale that an artist from Cape Town (I think) had made. They were just too magical for words and I was on the verge of buying one until I was convinced by a friend not to because they just couldn’t understand what I would need a giant HB pencil for.
I’m so sad I didn’t buy it and last night I went looking around on the net to try see if I could find out who the artist is so I could mail to ask if they by any chance have one stashed away under their bed for me. Do any of you know the person who makes/made them?
Along my net travels I came across other giant things that I would very easily give a home too, granted it would be easier if I lived in a castle of some sort, but I would make a plan. Aren’t they just too lovely.
