Some artists might have a hard time picking out materials to turn into their artwork and/or inspiration. Not the unique and talented artist Steven J. Backman, who had no problem picking—er, toothpicking, rather—his material of choice. That’s right. He makes amazing works of art (and functional mini-yachts!!!) out of toothpicks! Have a gander at the work of the man oft referred to as Pick-asso!
