Awesome Nintendo DS art is the perfect way to honour an old console

The humble Nintendo DS Lite was first released way back in 2006, and it quickly became an icon of the gaming community. 16 years later, many of the consoles are on their last legs – but someone has come up with a brilliant idea to immortalise that dual-screen gaming companion. 

A user on Reddit has shared a photo of how they transformed his broken DS into a work of art. The framed work features a fully dismantled DS with annotations – and I love the design. If you're looking to create your own artwork and don't have a spare DS lying around to dismember, why not check out our roundup of the best art supplies and get creative in a more traditional way?
