My earliest memories of making art involve the use of wax crayons. I can still remember the pleasure of opening a new box of crayons: the distinct smell of the wax, the beautifully colored tips, everything still perfect and unused. Using the first crayon from a new box always gave me a slight pain. Through a novel technique that I have developed, I again find myself working with the familiar form of the crayon.
It's amazing what some people can creatively do with everyday objects, and Christian Faur has recently dropped my jaw ... He makes pixel-art out of crayons, No not drawing with them, but using them stacked in a tray to make a picture.
