I don’t normally post two things from an artist in one day; however this seemed too good to pass up, especially due to this blog’s affinity for matches. Ryo Shimizu created this delicate human shell out of hundreds of matches entitled Matchstick Drawing. How macabrely awesome it would have been to watch this figure meet his flaming demise.
