Just a flat concept 'edit' icon to nestle nicely into iOS7. As always, thoughts, comments, feedback, suggestions, poke fun at, etc are always welcome...no actual pencils were used in the creation of this icon.
Hit @2x for your larger view...it might even be worth it for you...but probably not!
Do it anyway...

Nice job !
@Mike Beecham your icon work is superb
i like the colours and the simplicity of the Pencil but for me the pencil isn't centered. If you shrunk the pencil to have the rubber end inside the darker middle it would be perfect. This would still keep it in a geometric shape and align it to the centre.
the icon is still awesome though but the alignment is the only thing that gets to me.
Love the geometry. Maybe try swapping the yellow for the red so the eraser is pink-ish and put the yellow where the purple is to mimic wood?
Great look... and I know the tip of the pencil hits that point, it just seems a bit too high and right for me. 2¢

Just a quick rebound to see what I could come up with. Love the original.
Your comments are appreciated.

This works really well as a standalone composition, but wondering if in smaller sizes it would be too busy to be readable at a glance. I guess it does depend a bit on context...
Killing it with the icons!
Perfect use of symmetry
Damn, that is really awesome!
Thanks for the feedback guys...really appreciate that you liked it. I understand the arguments for the central position of the edit icon. I somehow felt it would be nicer to have it off-centre and bring the 'eraser' end of the pencil in line with the geometric lines.
Not sure if it worked or not, but I kinda like it..it's different.
