Being in creative torment, a person can do everything with a pen or pencil that is in his hands. Someone chews on writing utensils, someone just twirls them in their hands, and some create outlandish designs out of pencils.
I looked at the pictures at my leisure, trying to understand the system of cutting these patterns, but in some cases it turned out to be a difficult task. Apparently, you need to be not only an artist, but also an architect, or an engineer to figure out how to braid a wooden pencil, even if "in a past life" he was soft and obeyed every movement of the one who used it. Well, one more point to the piggy bank of dreamers-inventors!
