Jerkface recently finished up his 30 days campaign, where he dropped a new piece of art every day for a consecutive 30 days (even though he started the 30 days with only 10 completed works).

Mysterious street artist Banksy has been pretty quiet since his Better Out Than In exhibition came to an end. Luckily we still have his older pieces to admire – only this time they’re in LEGO form. The good people over at The Brick Fantastic recreated several of Banksy’s most well-known pieces using the timeless toy building blocks. All the pieces came out great. It’s awesome to see someone else re-imagine such great works of art. Can you tell what all the pieces are?
North Brother Island is known as the “last unknown place in New York City.” It has no public access, and occupies about 20 acres of land. It was primarily used as a quarantine in the 1930s, and after WWII it was a temporary home for veterans.

Only a few photographers have been allowed on the island since 2006, and Christopher Payne is one of them. Here are some photos from him of the abandoned island.
