Check out these drawings by product designer Peter Crawley.
Pretty neat, but average, you say? The drawings suddenly seem a lot cooler when you zoom in and realize that Crawley hand-stitched these using a needle and thread!
Crawley (a Briton) states that a roadtrip across America sparked the idea to begin illustrating this way, though there's no mention of what specifically inspired the idea of using thread. You can check out more of his stuff here.
