Australia-based artist Ghostpatrol is turning the tables on the drawing process by transforming the pencil from tool to canvas in playful art that combines sculpture with illustration. Neatly lining up wooden pencils whose cores have been shaven down to form a blank surface for twee portraits of young’uns and frolicking woodland creatures, his collection evokes innocence and childhood nostalgia in both form and content. Check out 15 of our favorites works by the quirky artist after the jump.
