I'm a 25-year old guy with Asperger's Syndrome living in West Virginia. My interests include anime and manga, Japanese culture and language studies, Marcel Proust, Chris Marker (who finished what Proust started), pre-war blues and gospel music, old-time Appalachian folk music, fairy tales, ancient and medieval epic poetry, roleplaying games, survival-horror games, interactive fiction, weird fiction, horror literature, silent films, feminism, flea markets, retrogaming, and western cartoons. I have other interests besides these but I really think that's enough for now.

Incredible Miniature Animals Carved on Pencil Tips

Loving everything tiny, Seattle based artist Diem Chau has created her most recent project. Miniature animals carved in the wood and graphite of carpenter pencils. Carefully shaving the wood from the pencil to expose the inner graphite, she pain-painstakingly carved miniature animals with amazing results.
