Mojo Pencil - video

Mojo Pencil from Graham Smith on Vimeo.

All my pencil stubs were saved in a small round box, once they were too small to draw with anymore. I didn't want to throw them away after we had spent so much time creating the drawings for my book together.

The smallest ones were so cute looking, I decided to save them, and honor their colorful lives by making good luck charms, steeped in drawing Mojo.

This 1 minute video is how I made them.
