Saving Shavings for the Sake of Art

by Hazel Chua

Different pencil sharpeners result in differently-shaped and textured pencil shavings. For example, the ones that come with a handle churn out thin, coil-like shavings (which I packed into tiny bags and used as instant noodle props for my Barbie dolls when I was a kid.)

Then there’s the handier, compact sharpener that produces the kind of shavings that Marta Altes uses in her art.

Pencil Shaving Art

The caricatures are playful, fun, and obviously creative. I wonder why nobody thought of doing this before, but then again, pencil shavings don’t really seem very appealing as an art medium at first thought.

Aside from the rad guy with the shaving mohawk, check out the rest of series featuring a lion, a ballerina, and a cool surfer dude all penciled in with shavings completing the scene.
