Crayon Artist - The Amazing Don Marco

Confession: I have a box of crayons and I love them.
Perhaps because crayons were the first real art tool I ever used, my heart waggles a little when I spot a box of Crayolas.

Although the melted crayons are kind of kool when done right, we're not going there today...

Hold on to your Crayolas! 

You ain't seen what can happen when a box of Crayolas land in the hand of a master crayon artist!

Don Marco (Awesome website here) creates lifelike pictures of animals, Native Americans, and much more with Crayolas.
 Using just Crayola crayons,  Don Marco creates portraits that look so lifelike you want to reach out and touch them.

Aside from portraits, Mr. Marco also does scenes from the old west, beach scenes, animals and celebrities.


His original artwork goes for upwards of a few thousand dollars but he does have prints at a reasonable price. You can check out what he has for sale when you click on this Originals for Sale at the top of his page.

Go check out his site and I know you'll be rushing to the store to get some Crayolas!  I've got a long way to go before I get to the level of Don Marco but I'm having fun with the journey.
And no, I don't know what's going on with foxy's nose, but I still had fun. :)
