Never Be My Friend by Adam Ellis

I absolutely love these drawings by Adam Ellis. Adam just browses through his friends' Facebook images, chooses his favorite ones, and draws them. I love the style and humorous liberties he takes on each photo. You can even get one of yourself!

Digital Art by Erik Schumacher

Erik Schumacher (kire1987 on Deviant Art) is a German student studying physics, but in my opinion, he should stick to art. He definitely has some impressive work and is part of the distinguished Depthcore art collective. There is a distinct style to his work, but his techniques don't feel overused. Check out some more of his work on Deviant Art.

Awe Inspiring Paintings by Huang Guofu

If you ever get discouraged with your work and need some motivation, recall the paintings of Huang Guofu. Huang lost his arms in electrical accident at the age of four, but never became discouraged. Instead, he pursued his dreams by painting with his feet. At the age of 18, Huang's father became ill, so he traveled China and sold his painting to help pay for his father's treatments.

He became so good at painting that he was awarded the role of vice-curator at the Chongqing Talents Museum and has encouraged other mouth and foot painters to join the museum.

Rolling through the Bay by Scott Weaver

This might just be the most ingenious sculpture ever created. Scott Weaver's Rolling through the Bay sculpture of San Francisco is not just a sculpture made of 100k toothpicks, it is also a kinetic sculpture that gives you multiple tours of San Francisco via different paths in the sculpure. Using ping pong balls as your tour guides, you can see various landmarks, neighbords, historic locations, and iconic symbols of the Bay Area.This amazing sculpture has taken over 3,000 hours in 35 years to create, and is still being built with toothpicks from around the world.

Watching this video is a must to understand the true awesomeness of his work.
