My Collection – Photos and Commentary


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.

Birds from Wallace Pencil Co:

Reptiles and Amphibians:


Small Mammals:

Large Mammals:


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.
