Seinfeld wielding nunchucks!

Possibly the most ridiculous, and simultaneously awesome, caricatures in existence. Brandon Bird likes to draw celebrities in outrageous poses or stick them in bizarre situations, both to great comic effect. The John Tesh illustration (after the jump) is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

    Hahahahah…this guy is genius (and talented too). I love the Harrison Ford/Magic the Gathering one.

    Playing Magic the Gather on a regular basis is something I can definitely relate to.

    Solid gold Jeff… I kinda want to turn these into greeting cards or something

    haha how awesome !!!
    id buy prints of that john tesh illustration.

  • hahah tesh’s facial expression is perfect – he looks the same way whenever conan brings him on the show to make a fool of himself.

    that seinfeld one is weirdo, but not as weirdo as this:

    Uh-oh. Another obscure sound-effects/art/pop culture reference to make at cocktail parties…
    INT. LUXURY PENTHOUSE. NIGHT.
    NEW AGE MUSIC blares through the HI FI SYSTEM. Sound of BREAKING GLASS o.s: “TESH!”
    CUT TO John Tesh.
    Mary Hart exclaims, “You’re cut off!”

  • why is that funny?
    most ridiculous illustrations….are you joking?
    its just random.

    • lighten UP

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
