A Californian dad has come up with a genius way to recycle crayons that would otherwise be thrown out after one use at restaurants or schools.
Last week we introduced you to the cool artwork of Dorota Pankowska, the Toronto-based artist behind the ‘+1 Add Friend’ buttons. Now we’re back with something equally as quirky and cool from the artist: Crayon Business Cards!
For the American spring, retail giant Bloomingdale’s contacted a number of famous designers and asked them to create pieces that match Crayola crayon colours.
US-based artist Diem Chau has been making waves with her intricately carved works, that’s for sure. Her Northwest Natives Alphabet Set takes 52 crayons, half representing all the 26 alphabet letters, and the other half of which stand for the corresponding word spelled with each letter. The Yuma myotis (or Vesper bat) is quite cute.
These unique pieces of art are by Jessica Kerbawy, who arranges crayons on a foam board before melting them with a heat gun. If you love ’em, you can see more of her work on Etsy.
Look very closely as your eyes are deceiving you. These are not innocent crayons, fit for small fingers. No, they are instead luxury health bars, made from a complex combination of flavours but featuring at their core chocolate covered sunflower seeds, fruity pebbles and melted marshmellow. They are Luxirare Edible Crayons, and they are amazing!
