To The End by Guillaume Cornet
Illustrator Mr. Guil wanted to create a poster that inspired people to use things up to the very end – and so, logically, he did so by using a pencil right to the end.
“I have always wondered why people don’t use pencils to the very end. This piece, made with one pencil, is influenced by the visual image of pencils revolving around my creatures combined with abstract forms and structures.”
“I find it interesting to observe how the pencils diminishing size can affect the line and shapes of a drawing. Imposing alterations to the hand movement. Therefore contributing to the creative process of the pencil men eating pencils; men on pencil skies, with pencil nose and pencil tattoos.”
Over 1.5 billion Bic pens are thrown out by Americans every year – and it’s a fair bet that most of the them still have a lot of writing left in them.
