Illustrations on Etch-a-Sketch

Here at Randommization, we’ve always been proud of our artistic skills on an Etch-a-Sketch. Obviously, all that pride was before we came across the Etch-a-Sketch art of George Vlosich, and now we’re busy hiding and erasing all those stupid drawings we made. The artist started off simple, and then moved on to some real complex and classy artwork, all created on the children’s toy. You can imagine the hard work that goes into each of these pieces, considering the artist has to start over if there is a single mistake in the work.

Incredible wildlife shots

UK based photographer Ben Hall travels across the world, capturing the beauty of the wildlife. Coupled with the photographers keen eye for natural setting and its visual representation, the photographs mostly come out as these wonderful captures, like they were always intended to be. Capturing the perfect shot can take weeks or even months, and Hall often haunts the location until the perfect shot is captured.

Paris landmarks re-created with brand logos

Artist Risto-Jussi Isopahkala‘s project Logo Tourist goes through cityscapes and famous Parisian landmarks, re-creating these well known places in brand logos. The way branding is going, this may not be that far fetched a vision. But the Eiffel Tower would really suck, with its heavy dependence on the Xerox logo. But hey, there’s always the Arc de Triomphe to look at.

100,000 toothpicks and 35 years later, man creates incredible kinetic San Francisco sculpture

The incredible kinetic sculpture you see here is named Rolling Through the Bay. Artist Scott Weaver started work on the complex sculpture 35 years ago, and continues to modify and expand it to this day. A depiction of San Francisco, the model uses more than 100,000 toothpicks with multiple balls running around city areas to give you “tours” of the city. Scott has spent more than 3000 hours on the project, and the toothpicks come from all over the world. As the artist himself, friends and family go out for holidays, they never forget to return with toothpicks.
