No Fun City

This is a poster I made for our Waterfront train station. A few of us were each given a nickname for Vancouver, I was given “No Fun City”. You can view it larger here.

    :) i just glimpsed at it briefly…thought, oh cool design. then I “read the story”. so good! While they are repeated, the cat’s eyes seem to change with the mouth expressions. I like it!

    Jeff, why would Vancouver have a theme of no fun? Maybe some people may think of Fort St John but Vancouver??? Great comic panel!

      i believe we originally got the reputation due to some laws regarding noise and it became an issue with music venues – we’ve done a good job of shedding this reputation so i kind of poked fun at it

Photoshopped Selfie Sticks Replace Guns in Popular Movies

Untitled-1

Been seeing a lot of these selfie stick images circulating the net recently and was trying to figure out where they were from. The image above, from Terminator (the best I’ve seen so far) was shared on Twitter last year. Since then a Tumblr has popped up called Guns Replaced with Selfie Sticks sharing similar images from popular movies, and it appears they take submissions. More images below.

Animation: Yeasayer “Silly Me”

yeasayer-newmedia

Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
