    Inspired by seeing carved pencils online, Cindy Chin, a sculptor who enters the Annual Miniature show each year decided she wanted to enter something different as opposed to her usual clay sculptures.

    In a blog post, she explains how she experimented with different tools at a pencil shop. “I found that the best tools for me were an Exacto blade for removing the bulk and the smallest needle that I could find for the detail,” she writes.

    Chin hopes that her work will inspire others just as other graphite carvers have inspired her
