Pete Goldlust loves to carve pencils. I love the intricacies of his designs. The only thing I could do with a crayon and a sharp blade is get a wasted Sunday afternoon in the emergency with paper towel paper wrapped around a bleeding finger or two. I will leave such tasks to experienced individuals. My thumb is still throbbing from my last mishap. Somewhere in Vancouver there is a totem pole wishing it was blinged out like these carvings.
