Life-Size LEGO SUV [Photos]

Life-Size LEGO SUV [Photos] 0

This SUV built out of LEGOs was made at Legoland Florida. It took 22 people 2,500 hours and 382,858 bricks to build. Why the hell did they build a Ford Explorer, you ask?

Maurice Mbikayi’s Keyboard Art [Photos] 0

Maurice Mbikayi is an amazing artist. Personally, his use of unconventional materials reminds me of American artist Tim Hawkinson. Mbikayi was born in Kinshasa, Congo, and lives in Cape Town, South Africa. He studied graphic design and visual communication at the Academies des Beaux Arts.
