“Crayons are a gateway drug. To most adults, the sight and smell of crayons produce specific memories of childhood. The twist in the road to nostalgia is the creation of a new object, from a medium in which it was not intended. This element of unexpected interaction and play had me at hello. My intent is to continue to seriously create art that looks at itself unseriously.”

This is the fun, yet incredibly creative world of Herb Williams. He uses thousands of Crayola crayons (“I order each color individually packed (3000 to a case) and cut the sticks down to the length I need”) to create these amazing sculptures – I would love to see one up close to see that incredible detail.
