Like just about all my friends, I decided to cross the Bay and head over to the Maker Faire last weekend. That's where I saw the Mercedes Pens.
Most of the time, I'm not a big fan of the "glue shit all over the car" school of art car creation- I feel that it's a calculated diss of the concept of the automobile itself in many cases- but when it's this extreme I can't help but approve. We're talking 10,000 pens here, not some half-assed glue-gun-and-50-army-men job. You can learn more about artist Costas Schuler at his website.
