DIY.....Crayola Carvings ~ . Diem Chau is an artist who is best known for her intricate and detailed crayon carvings. Inspired by folk art and wood carvings from the Depression Era, Diem chose crayons as her medium for their fragility and reminder of childhood. Here she has carved the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Impressive, right? Check out the rest of her crayon carvings here!
Artist Hoang Tran matches characters from popular culture to their appropriate crayon color and then carves the character into the actual crayon, including an entire series of characters from Adventure Time.
