Realistic pencil drawings are always interesting.
British graffiti artist, political activist, director and talantische Banksy , probably the most popular and at the same time the most mysterious in the world of street artist. He became famous throughout the world due to its unique “guerrilla” style of stencil graffiti that appeared in a variety of public places – on the walls of buildings in London, Brighton, Bristol, even at the barrier in the West Bank between Israel and Palestine. But despite his worldwide fame, Banksy even so managed to keep the veil of secrecy around it, and anonymity.
The lion is one of the four big cats, and is also known as the king of all animals. Wild lions currently exist in Africa and Asia.
“We are the children of our landscape; it dictates behavior and even thought in the measure to which we are responsive to it” (Lawrence Durrell).
(click images for detail) Thirty five years ago I had yet to be born, but artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay , that he continues to modify and expand even today. The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed.

Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he could probably learn something from Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen. The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore. Installed three times in the past year, the next deployment will be next week from June 9–13 at DMY Berlin's International Design Fair , which is now in its 8th year. The installations, which look like the work of horrifyingly large arachnids, grew in scale and scope as the year progressed, first deployed inside a small Croatian gallery, then an abandoned attic during October’s Vienna Design Week.
Convicted forger A. Schiller was serving his time in Sing Sing prison in the late 1800s when guards found him dead in his cell. On his body they found seven regular straight pins whose heads measured the typical 47/1000ths of an inch or 1.17 millimeters in diameter.
