Although not the first artist to carve images from Crayola crayons, Hoang Tran of Sunnyvale, carves his in even more detailed likenesses than our other favorite Crayon carver, Diem Chau, and adds painted details. And since he is lesser known, his are actually available for purchase at an affordable price.
above: The Walter White Breaking Bad Crayon is even available with a little glass beaker
Characters from Breaking Bad, Star Wars, The Big Lebowski, Doctor Who and Game Of Thrones melt my heart. Also available are crayons carved into the characters from Futurama, Adventure Time, Disney characters and more.

What started out as a joke became one of the most popular projects illustrator for Jon DeFreest, aka Jonny Etc. Creating faux Ben and Jerry flavored Ice Creams for Vulture.com and then subsequently commissioned by other sites such as Buzzfeed.com, NYmag.com, and Tauntr.com, the Pop-Culture Pints continue to get giggles.
The faux ice creams are based on Pop Culture TV and movie characters as well as timely subjects and movements.
