Do we fully appreciate them?

Hello readers,

We use them daily, but do we fully appreciate them?
I sketch everyday. You write in class with them. I use them in my learning process. You sign receipts. And so on.

Do you ever think about what’s behind the pencil you are holding in your hand? Do you understand how it’s built, how it works and the amount of effort used in making it?
Well, look no further. :) I compiled a playlist of videos to illustrate the process of making a few writing, drawing and marking tools and materials that we use on a daily basis.


  1. Pencil (5:10)
  2. Coloured pencil (5:01)
  3. Pencil Sharpener (4.37)
  4. Eraser (5:39)
  5. Highlighter (5:05)
  6. Fountain pen (5:00)
  7. Retractable Ballpoint pen (5:01)
  8. Ballpoint pen (7:57)
  9. Paper – From wood (1:37)
  10. Paper – Recycled materials (5:01)
  11. TOTAL: 50:08 minutes

Enough with the chitchat. Sit back, relax and push the play button!
Let it all soak in :)
