Well - there are many gushing haiku out there, but I chose one which I think is rather beautiful and maybe a little poignant.
The pencil is chunky and sturdy, with a slightly rough surface to the barrel (a bit like slate). I'm not going to claim it does anything that an ordinary pencil won't do - but I am going to say that it's lovely in the hand and a pleasure to use - and of course it allowed me to get the variation of shades that give the letters a slightly 3D look.
(I worked my way back over the letters and the shading 5 or 6 times.)
Even the colour is in pencil - 2 shades of ordinary coloured pencil together.
(If you've never tried using 2 different coloured pencils on top of each other I recommend it - it always gives a much more interesting colour than either of the single pencils. As my classes will attest, I have been known to cheekily say "1coloured pencil is colouring in, 2 is ART.")
Here's a picture of the pencil as well as the haiku:
Wishing you all a happy Valentine's Day!
