Brilliant artist Pete Goldlust takes those juvenile (and fully wonderful) tools of yore -- coloring crayons -- and turns the crayons themselves into works of art by carving them up.

At left, some of his coolest works. From left to right, they're inspired by: tree, bub, cane toad, tennis crayon, loud company, rind, honey, ray, crushed beehive and tramp.

Check out more cool crayons after the jump.

From left to right: diamelle, crazy mel and gold croc.
