An Entire Alphabet Carved Into Pencil Lead. Wait, What?

 
Chien Chu Lee is an artist from Taiwan that carves incredible miniature sculptures from various lead pencils. The self-taught artist has been carving lead since 2010 and the detail and intricacy of his work is remarkable to see.
 

Chien Chu Lee’s most astounding works are the complete alphabets he has managed to carve into the lead used in mechanical pencils. The artist has gone as small as 0.5 mm and these lead sticks are far thinner than the traditional lead pencils carved by other artists.
