Wax Nostalgic

Hoang Tran is a pop-culture junkie who turned his interest into profitable art.

Tran carves pop-culture icons into Crayola crayons. These fun little pieces become even more alive when he adds a pop of color. Tran melts down other crayon colors and adds them to his tiny sculptures as an accent.

He has some pretty great series: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Batman, South Park… but my favorite has to be Star Wars.

Check them out below. If one really strikes you, you can actually purchase it is Etsy shop! For around $40, one of these could be yours.
