Bob Morehead is a self-taught artist who creates incredibly intricate sculptures using only wood glue and toothpicks. Guided by his imagination, and inspiration from the Italian architecture along the Amalfi Coast where he was born, one of Morehead’s most elaborate cityscapes spans 8 feet in length and consists of over 300,000 toothpicks. Check out “Bob’s Toothpick City” as well as more individual creations below!
Nebraska-based fine artist Cindy Chinn carves detailed sculptures out of pencils. For this scene of a family of elephants walking across the Serengeti, Chinn bought herself a 10x diopter floor lamp and a 90x Trinocular on an arm (kinda like the equipment you’d see at a dentist’s office). Check out more of her meticulous handiwork below!
