Upper Playground is proud to release a classic weapon of choice for many creatives around the world. The “Weapon of Mass Creation” pencil, inspired by those who stand for freedom of creative expression:
Following the attacks on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, the #2 pencil has become a familiar symbol of freedom against those who use violence to oppose it. Artists around the world have portrayed the pencil in illustrations and cartoons as a demonstration of defiance against violence and also of their continued support for creative freedoms. The pencil has been used in political protests, vigils and tributes across the globe.
