I think the sketches are amazing, and it’s the kind of thing I wish that I would have thought up in my days at Art School! In this age of computers, it’s really important for people to still use good ‘ol media like sketchbooks and pencils to keep on creating and innovating.
The following gallery of sketch art was created by Irina Vinnik, an artist based in Saint Petersburg, Russia. After viewing her profile, I’ve become a big fan of her drawing and sketching skills.

Here’s a ‘real’ Lego Bridge. German design studio Megx painted an urban concrete bridge to look like Lego.

Let’s just hope kids don’t try and climb up to get at the ‘bricks’…

If you’re in need of a Solar Birdhouse, look no further. If your garden birds are flying around in the dark like bats looking for their nest then this may be solution. Birds have been flying around for thousands of years without the air of a Lightsaber-looking perch, buy hay, why not?
