Seen a couple of these floating around but never a full set like this…LOVE!

Few more to check out over at the awesome Retronaut.

Sagaki Keita

Absolutely incredible work by Japanese artist, Sagaki Keita, whose pen and ink drawings are made up by thousands of hand drawn characters. Click images for larger view and see more at his website here.

First seen @ Colossal.

Gou Miyagi-crazy skateboarder

just seen a mate post this on facebook and found a few more vids. Amazing. This dude is def pushing the boundries of conventional skateboarding. I have seen inventive skaters before but Gou Miyagi is by far the most insane.Although some of it seems pointless a lot of it blows the mind. I see similarities with the street art movement of the early 2000s in the way that in some cases a destination is picked and the art is created around that.



This would brighten up anyone’s day! 😀
Happy happy joy joy!
