Snapchat ain’t just for dick pics, yo. Some talented munchkins are out there putting their finger-twiddling to amazingly sick use, creating artistic masterpieces that’ll make the tiny penises scribbled on your selfies look like something you wouldn’t even hang on the worst of fridges.

Firstly, to keep up with our antics, add us on Snapchat (PEDESTRIAN.TV):

Feel at liberty to indulge in their mad skills on your own Snap feed, adding to the melting pot of endless singing car videos, pre-drinks with people you barely know, and unlimited dog filters.

*Note*: All artwork below is created entirely within the app. No sneaky hacks, no external photoshop. IPads are used to draw the finer lines, and the drawings take hours to make. Painstakingly cool.
