(This is a scheduled post, so don't expect too much of it, but I'll be back soon, no worries no worries! For those already enjoying their summer vacation, have fun!)

What to do when you have a lot of time on your hands? Why, DIY art of course! And not just any art, no, masterpieces! iArtist london has made it quite easy: you order the box of the artist of your choice and you'll be able to make your own personalized copy of an original master. Sounds easy, right? You can choose between artists Damien Hirst (For the love of God), Mark Quinn (Self), Tracy Emin (Everyone I have Ever slept with), Rachel Whiteread (Pink Torso) & Banksy graffiti - all are British artists of course.
For example, let's take a look at the Damien Hirst box (the 'iHirst'), containing everything you'll need for his work "For the love of God". I'm sure a lot of you have already seen this before (take a peek below), it's so famous it even has its own Wikipedia page (here).

Now, this is what's inside the box 'iHirst':

Note how the box says: "Some assembly required", haha. This'll keep you entertained for months! I'm not a fan of 'bedazzling' things at all (gee, the only rhinestone I own is stuck on the button of my favourite pair of jeans, and believe me - I've tried EVERYTHING to get it off), but this looks fun, right?

If you have some time on your hands and need a little project, be sure to check out the rest of the artist boxes and HAVE FUN!
