Ink, pencil and charcoal were my favorite techniques in high school and college and I still favor them today. What amazes me about this piece is the attention to detail, and knowing how much patience and care was needed to create this.

I love the website's tagline "playing notes so low, you can't even hear them."
From Wikipedia: When the F-clef is placed on the fourth line, it is called the "bass clef". This is the only F-clef used today, so that the terms "F-clef" and "bass clef" are often regarded as synonymous.

Not only do they have the Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan, it turns out they have World Sand Sculpture Festival as well. Awesome.
I'm guessing they don't need to worry about the tide coming in and wrecking everything.

"The Brave New World Lamp, as it has been dubbed, stands at nearly 6-feet tall using a combination of oak and cast iron balancing weights."
I love the design and intricacy of siege machines, so of course I think that this is freakin' cool. Now to figure out how to somehow convince my wife to feel the same way ...
Thanks to @jwegis

"The 24th Marathon des Sables or Marathon of the Sands took place recently. The grueling six-day foot race across the Moroccan Sahara is one of the toughest in the world. The race covers 151 miles but was shortened this year because of bad weather. Many participants give up before reaching the finish line because of the rugged terrain that ranges from sandy to rocky. The daily average temperatures during the race are 86 degrees. Competitors run as far as 50 miles a day and are required to carry their own water and food. Water is rationed and handed out at checkpoints."

Photographer Peter Funch spends weeks taking photos on Manhattan street corners and then pastes them together into single photographs.

"Photographic artist Chris Jordan never ceases to amaze us with his clever pieces that allow people to “see” concepts that are often difficult to visualize. We submit for your viewing pleasure, his latest work, Gyre. Look familiar? The 8′ x 11′ triptych is based on the famous Japanese painting, “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” by Hokusai. Instead of paint, the colors are composed of 2.4 million pieces of plastic - the estimated number of pounds of plastic that enter the world’s ocean’s every hour! Gyre is the first image in a mini-series that Jordan is creating about the Pacific Garbage Patch, and is named after the Pacific Gyre, a thousand miles wide ocean current which turns clockwise like a giant slow-motion whirlpool and concentrates tons of the world’s trash."

This is truly amazing - I would love to see the techniques behind this. And I'm totally having nightmares about Clowns tonight. They are freakin' scary.

"Sayanthiny, a 12-year-old girl of Sri Lanka origin living in France, walked in a field of tulips in the Keukenhof flower garden, near Lisse, Netherlands, Monday. The Dutch Bureau for Tourism and Congresses estimates about 100,000 people visited the site Easter Weekend." (Peter Dejong/Associated Press)

"This is an editing experiment, trying to turn an abstract, serious film into its complete opposite: a comedy. I edited footage of '2001: a Space Odyssey' onto the audio from the trailer of 'Meet Dave' and this is the result."
Very funny, considering how somber and intense 2001 was.

Here's a great comment:
"The planet is reduced to a desert of powerlines, the only thing we care for because it feeds our lifestyle. We are the robot. Nature is the seed, alien yet alluring, yet we will never be able to grasp and manipulate it; it will do what it is meant to do. We will be murdered by our own powerlines, as evidenced by the robot's cracked eye at the end. Though I'm not sure why..."
This my first encounter with 65daysofstatic, and it won't be my last.

I'm a nut about Typography, and these are awesome examples of what you do with letters and some imagination. Oh and artistic skill doesn't hurt either. I'm also a supporter of deviantART which is a wonderful online community for artists.
