The Department of Phenomenal Pencil Art continues to marvel at the astonishingly intricate pencil sculptures created by Russian artist Salavat Fidai(previously featured here). Using an X-ACTO knife and extraordinary amounts of patience and care he can transform the end of an art pencil into tiny human figures – such as an astronaut and deep sea diver, expressive hands – including one offering the Vulcan salute, or any number of famous buildings.
