More Beer Can Art

Sir Norman's email of Beer Can Cars (see yesterday's post) and Lady Suzanne's comment about a Root Beer Bi-Plane, got me wondering what other Beer Can Art is out there (and there is a ton).

For example:

Each year the Turkish beer Efes Pilsen hosts a contest featuring art made out of their brand of beer cans. Here are some of the participants.
The artists spared no details on the project, creating impressive works featuring

miniature people playing instruments

elaborate buildings

and an awesome airplane

And my favorite: Knights!

Think. Drink. Be Merry. Made Models!

Sir Bowie of Greenbriar

The Beer Can Knights are awesome! Getting the logo just right on the shields and breast plate couldn't have been easy.

My Aunt Nita used to make rocking chair pin cushions out of coke cans when I was a kid. She would paint them black and add a red cushion on the seat for the pins.

Recycled art is awesome! My favorite Priest, Earl Rohleder, sculpts with metal from trash. He has a shop now in New Mexico.
