My Collection – Photos and Commentary

Animals

Worth the wait, I hope: Pencils with animal names (the type of animal, not Fluffy), having animal logos when possible.  I’ve limited it to one per animal, for the most part.

Fish:

Eberhard Faber’s generic Fish looks like it might be on a platter.

Insects:

Birds:

Birds from Wallace Pencil Co:

Reptiles and Amphibians:

Marsupial:

Small Mammals:

Large Mammals:

Camels:

Of all possible animals, who’d have thought that the camel would be the most popular?  These are from makers in five different countries: United States, Japan, Germany, China, and Korea.

Mythical Creatures:

I don’t know what a “suncow” is, but I say it’s a mythical creature.

Finally, we have the Golden ones:

Below are closer views of animal logos.  Click on them for pictures twice as large.

I recently got an iPad and found that large pictures sometimes display with low resolution.

    • Go ahead. And readers, I typically don’t allow links to other sites in comments, but if a link to mine is in the other site, I usually do.
