When pencils and art collide

Welcome to the strange world of Pencil-vanya

Discover an animated film set somewhere in Eastern Europe all about pencils, love and...well, all sorts of strange goings on. We featured this last year in Stationery Wednesday (edition 48) and yet somehow it failed to make it onto the website or blog. An oversight as this is a piece of stationery-animation genius. It is the work of Studio Tinto, and Alex in particular, as he was across the room when we were having a meeting with our friends at Sugarway on a project we're working on. Inspired by all the talk of stationery he went away and produced an animated short film. I don't remember much talk about pencils as we were largely focused on notepads if my memory serves me right, but nonetheless he has created a world that shows pencils in a way you will have never seen before. It is an animated short but when I say short, at over 4 minutes, it seems like a lot of work to me. Anyway, words cannot quite explain the world you'll find here so the best solution is to sit back and watch it.
