Meghan Maconochie a teacher and part time artist from South Africa uses colored pencils to create art, but not in the conventional sense.

Instead of coloring with the pencils, she sharpens them and layers the shavings to on a white background to create all kinds of beautiful things, ranging from animals, to food and portraits of pop icons.

She spends several hours on a single piece to give it a more “sculptural look”.

Her work has been tremendously well received. But unfortunately, she throws the shavings away after photographing them because her creations is that they won’t stay fixed to their paper.
