For nearly as long as man has walked the earth, artists have been creating masterpieces with pencils. These artists have taken the challenge to the next level and created/recreated masterpieces **with actual pieces of pencil**.
Some have meticulously carved objects out of the lead, such as a bust, a robot, and a mermaid. Others have used the pencil itself and its color to make artistic pieces, pictures of people hugging, bears, and abstract art. I have always been a fan of Edvard Munch and *The Scream*, but after looking at all the others pieces , I still can’t decide which I like best. Take a look at the 25 masterful creations below and try to pick your favorite(s).
