Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography. This week, we checked out creative pencil designs.

Graphite art
San Francisco-based artist Agelio Batle likes to create art out of everyday materials, like a pencil. He takes the idea even further with this graphite-based quill design that you can also write with.
