  • YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • hey mr de la hoz!

  • Colin

    I’d never really looked at your work before and its all good but i really enjoyed The Truth Is and Tom Cruise

  • Seb McLauchlan

    Hahaha thats a very inventive excuse, most people would have just kept walking and avoided eye contact!

    • im really interested in awkward situations and what lengths i will go to avoid them and often create a far more awkward situation. Essentially Curb Your Enthusiasm is my life.

  • Hehehehehee, I love your work. How large is this btw?

  • Great work Jeff! You show that honesty can be beautiful and funny in many ways.

  • Sometimes I hold my loose change in my fist because I’m afraid the jingling coins will attract panhandlers, and I won’t be able to bluff my way out with ‘Sorry, I don’t have any.” The downside is that my hand gets all sweaty and then I worry about having to meet someone new and give them a weird, clammy handshake.

  • I like the idea of this project, I’m intrigued to find out more and see the different lettering that comes out of it. I like the effect given with the letters not being straight.

  • Very powerful and mind-blowing work, I like the contrast between the colourful childish lettering and the deep complexity of human behaviour.

    Yesterday I walked past a woman asking for money. While I was saying “no im sorry” I was searching for my Ipod with my hand in my pocket and accidentally threw half of my spare change in front of her..

  • Terrel

    That is terrible… but funny!

    Once I was at the airport and saw an empty seat when every other was taken and sat in it chatting on my phone and eventually realized it said reserved for disabled or elderly so I got up and pretended to limp to the bathroom embarrassed that I had sat there for so long! But yes, relatable, lovely work!

    • hahahahha too good

  • Wybjorn

    one time at work i pretended i was deaf so i wouldnt have to talk to any customers

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
