Massive and amazing pen sketches.

Wow. When I first saw these (via Pondly) I was amazed, and then I discovered more and saw the scale that this chap is drawing at. Mind blowing. Gorgeously realistic. What a talent. 
Spaniard, Juan Francisco Casas uses ballpoint pens to create these portraits. 

Awesome. I can't even comprehend the detail.

100,000 Toothpicks and 35 Years: Rolling Through the Bay

How gorgeous is this?

Rolling through the bay is an abstract toothpick sculpture of San Francisco. Made from 100,000 toothpicks. Not only is it a gorgeous piece of art, it also has four ping pong ball paths that roll through different landmarks. 

The artist, Scott Weaver, spent 3,000 hours on it over a period of 34 years. He started building toothpick sculptures in 1968, when he was 8 years old. In 1974 he started a new sculpture and added the Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Street, that was the start of Rolling Through the Bay.
