Zack Zezima on death and zines

An email from recent Illustration graduate, Zack Zezima:

I just finished up making a zine called “Theories in Death and Nature”…It’s about death (morbid, I know) and 7 of the many religious/spiritual beliefs around it.

You can grab your own copy of the zine online via Etsy or in person at Desert Island in Brooklyn.

Go Zack go!

Quick Hit: Pencil-tip Sculptures

Brazilian born, Connecticut based, Dalton Ghetti carefully crafts the tips of pencils into amazing micro sculptures. These miniature masterpieces are a side project for the professional carpenter, who has been perfecting this art for the last 25 years. Dalton uses a razor blade, sewing needle, a sculpting knife, a steady hand and lots of patience to meticulously carve the graphite which can take anywhere between a few months to a few years.
