Crayola crayons. Every first world child has had them, coloured with them and yes, I admit it, even eaten them…they don’t taste as good as they look.
Still, Hoang Tran, a young California based artist, looked at his crayons and saw something else; Darth Vader, cats, foxes, Dr Who, a bride & groom, even a kraken. The colourful tiny sculptures are crafted by hand and feature iconic images from pop culture. Best of all for burgeoning art collectors like me, they are available for sale on his Etsy site at about $30 a pop.
