Jasenko Dordevic re-thought Rodin’s The Thinker on a miniature scale.

Plenty of people make art using pencils, including, no doubt, readers of Air Mail Pilot such as yourself. Big deal. But here’s something more unusual: a Bosnian sculptor named Jasenko Dordevic makes art from pencils.

Using magnifying glasses and miniature scalpels and chisels, he carves teeny-tiny figures on pencils’ graphite tips. (Graphite is the black stuff in the middle of a pencil that leaves marks on paper and desks and binders. It’s a crystalline form of carbon, but you knew that.)
