Pawsonally, I have never smelled the crayon most humans think of but I do know the stink of some black chunky industrial crayon used for marking. HuMom has boxes she snagged at a yard sale or thrift store. The packaging is pawsitively ancient & every crayon is black; she loves them. Hi, it’s CEO Olivia. You are probably wondering why I’m yapping about crayons. It’s because today’s artist Herb Williams makes dogs, yes dogs out of crayons. Appawrently they’re wooftastically colorful. According to wikipedia the French word crayon, originally meaning ‘chalk pencil’ dates to somewhere near the 16th century, & it derives from the word craie (chalk) which comes from the Latin word creta (Earth).
Williams sculptures have been placed in public arenas, such as children’s hospitals, corporate lobbies, museum walls, & the White House. He even holds a world record with Ripley’s & Guinness. These pawtacular dog sculptures are created using a wagnificent amount of individual crayons, 100s of 1000s I read. I dug up that Williams is the only artist to have an account with Crayola.
Let’s have a look at what I sniffed out.

Have a pawsome weekend. Remember to be gnawsome, be kind & stay safe.
CEO Olivia, Dot & Jerry Underfoot 🐾💜🐾
