There is a big amount of different hobbies. Some people spend their time doing something that they like not only because of the love to this business but due to this deal, they can make money. For instance, American Bert McLain, who began collecting houses of cards as a child, now constructs copies of world architectural masterpieces from playing cards. In his childhood he dreamed of becoming an architect. He is from Los Angeles. At the age of five, using a deck of cards that his father had forgotten on the table after an evening poker with friends, Bert built a house of cards six stories high. At the age of 12, he built the Continental Building (the first skyscraper of the "city of angels": 13 floors, height 46 meters). And at the age of 17 - the Bank of the USA Tower (73 floors, height - 310 meters). By the way, the vice-president of the bank have seen a photo of this card masterpiece in the newspaper and gave Bert a personal scholarship to study at the Faculty of Architecture of the local university. Recently, Bert McLain has received international recognition. The Saudi Arabian government commissioned him to build a card copy of the Royal Center, a giant high-rise complex. They built a special pavilion next to the copying object, purchased building materials (decks of cards), determined a fee of $ 1.5 million, and set a deadline of 2 months. Bert did it in one and a half. The Palace of Cards turned out to be 15.3 meters long and 3.5 meters high. It took 226 252 cards out of 4 351 decks to make it. The next hobby is pictures of nails. Marcus Levine (born 29 June 1965, in Leeds, England) is a British nail artist and sculptor. He was born in Yorkshire, England and studied at the Leeds College of Art. His work has featured in The Telegraph, Hello magazine and ArtDaily, along with regional television appearances on BBC Look North and ITV Calendar. Levine began his career as an artist working with abstract works, but became interested in sculptures after he noticed "the interplay between the rigid, angular nails and the soft curves of the human torso". Levine became a nail sculptor in 2004, after spending much of his early career working with different art forms. His first major position in art was at Harlech Television in Bristol, England as a Quantel Paintbox designer in the late 1980s. In 1989, he moved to work for a family printing machines and supplies business. While working at the business, he focused his artist practice on Photography, Landscape water colours and acrylic portraiture. Levine created his first figurative nail sculpture in 2004 and is believed to be the first person to use nails to describe figurative studies in this way. Throughout his career as a nail sculptor, Levine has used a number of different techniques and nails. His non-representational pieces allow him to use larger clout nails, which add depth to his sculptures. On other pieces, Levine has been known to use 20mm cabinet nails. The technique of many nail sculptors varies. Levine stated in an interview with Global News that it can often take anywhere between two days to two months to create the various sculptures. The 3D art can often contain anything from 15,000 to 200,000 nails. The larger pieces of work that are created by Levine, often contain three different type and sizes of nails. While some artists may sketch the work out beforehand, Levine made it clear that all the sculptures are created by freehand. Levine has stated that light plays an integral part in the creation of his projects, due to the 3D aspects of his work. It’s quite common for the completed pieces of art to appear differently at different times of the day, depending on the light conditions and combination of artificial and natural light. He said in an interview, "the shadows across the sculptures change and affect the contrast, and by altering artificial lighting, the sculptures can appear as light as a pencil sketch or as dark as a charcoal drawing." Levine stated in an interview that many of his works are influenced by Michelangelo and Auguste Rodin. "A lot of my sculptures are classical nudes in the vein of Michaelangelo or Rodin. They're in a historical style but with an industrial twist." His notable works. Levine created a piece of art made from 28,000 nails at Cartwright Hall in Bradford, Yorkshire in 2011. The art work was called Hung Out to Dry and is currently displayed outside Bradford's Cartwright Hall. The work was commissioned by Bradford Council, with the sculpture standing at 5 metres high and features a stainless steel panel hung between two giant steel nails. Hung Out to Dry is displayed in Lister Park, Bradford. During the same year, he was commissioned by Cartwright Hall to create a sculpture for Bradford's civic art gallery. In 2012, Levine was commissioned by the British Science Association to create a sensory Oak nail sculpture, hand carved out of 4m of green Oak tree trunk, which was displayed at the Bradford Science Festival. Afterwards it was moved to the University of Bradford and is displayed outside the University's main entrance In May 2015, Al Pacino commissioned a piece of work on himself, which was created by Levine. His work has been steadily rising in value, with the Al Pacino artwork costing £42,000.
