Tokyo-based British designer Duncan Shotton has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his adorable creation, Rainbow Pencils.

Rainbow Pencils are pencils made out of recycled colored paper instead of wood. The pencils leave behind rainbow shavings every time they are sharpened.

A Rainbow Pencil functions like a regular pencil. Each pencil comes with a six-color rainbow core and a white or black exterior, which is also made of recycled paper.

The Kickstarter campaign has already reached more than half of its funding goal as of this post, and still has several days to go.

Shotton runs a small design studio where he creates things that are aimed to ‘bring happiness to people in their everyday lives.’ His fun and quirky works include the cloud keyholder and the Pinocchio-inspired real boy pins.
