Aled Lewis

Aled Lewis is one of those illustrators you are secretly jealous of because his designs get chosen to be made into shirts on Threadless and designbyhumans over and over again. Would you like me to tell you why that is? It’s because the designs you’re submitting are ones that have already been rejected by other clients and you’re just trying to make some money off of them in a last ditch effort! Aled’s designs, on the other hand, are all well-thought out, brilliantly detailed, illustrations actually worth buying!


Love this guy’s sense of humour, do yourself a favour and head over to his portfolio site.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
