A-Z: Northwest Natives
- In Chameleon, a lone lizard sits atop a graphite stalk, pondering its existence.
- In the alphabet collection, A is for Aquilegia, more commonly known as the Columbine. B is for Bald Eagle, C is for Cougar, D is for Dogwood, E is for Elk, F is for Fox, and G is for Grizzly.
- A detailed view of F is for Fox.
- H is for Heron, I is for Iris, J is for Juniper, K is for Killer Whale, L is for Lynx, and M is for Mountain Goat.
- J is for Juniper, the conifers that gave the world the joy that is gin.
- "I really had fun doing this guy," says Chau. "The two color combo was a challenge, positioning the whale's body on this crayon was also hard. I finally just took some liberties and placed his dorsal fin on top of his head."
- N is for Northern Spotted Owl, O is for Otter, P is for Painted Turtle, Q is for The Quinault Tribe, R is for Rhododendron, S is for Salmon, and T is for Timberwolf.
- A close-up of the adorable O is for Otter.
- Perhaps our favorite of the collection, P is for Painted Turtle perfectly captures a skyward-facing turtle in the wax of a crayon.
- U is for Urchin, V is for Viola, W is for Wolf Eel, X is for Xanthogrammica, or giant green anemone, Y is for Yuma myotis (vesper bat), and Z is for Zapus princeps, the Western jumping mouse.
- A 360-degree view of Y is for Yuma myotis, the latin name for the vesper or evening bat.
- The Dreamer and The Lone Deer, two sculptures crafted from pencils.
- The detail captured in The Last Honey Bee, a graphite sculpture carved from a carpenter’s pencil, is astounding.
