For most of us, crayons are simple tools for coloring. For Hoang Tran, however, they are tiny little canvases with endless possibilities. Tran skillfully carves surprisingly detailed versions of some of our favorite pop culture characters into the tips of these crayons, then paints them to perfection. With crayon sculptures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, R2-D2, Han Solo, Batman villains, and more, Tran shows that there is no end to the possibilities in his work. See more on his website, or buy some of his work on Etsy.
