Graphic designer Tim Fraser Brown reproduced Manet’s ‘Bar at the Folies Bergere’ using over 5,000 pantone chips to liven up a party he hosted at his design studio!
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!
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.
My friend, and fellow Emily Carr graduate, Vasho Pekar and his co-workers at Artifex Studios (amazingly talented effects artists) put together this great little parody/re-cut of Cloverfield when they had a little down time at the office. It just hit FunnyOrDie yesterday and I’m sure it will be a big hit, it is really, really, well done. You probably need to have seen the flick for the full effect but maybe not. Great work Vasho!
Michael Bay, director of Transformers and other predictable blockbuster movies (in which his own name often appears as big as the main titles) apparently wrote a script for The Dark Knight that was rejected by Warner Bros. Amazingly, it has surfaced on the net…
I am always scouring the net for fun little comics and one of my favourites of this last year has been Jeremyville’s comic for Mumble Magazine. It isn’t updated as frequently as it used to be, but take a look through the 15 or so comics in the archive – they are so so so good. One of my favourites has to be this one (it was too large to squeeze onto here).
I am quite jaded when it comes to parody music videos – but this one is as good as it gets. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you have already seen the sensational video for Justice’s latest single, Stress (I posted about it awhile ago). The hoodlums’ violence in the video was controversial to some but it was exactly the type of hardcore attitude that begged to be parodied. Without further ado I present to you, Justesse – No Stress directed by Thomas Vandenberghe (according to Antville and Youtube) and produced by Charles Villeneuve:
The firecracker part is hilarious!
If you never saw the original video for Stress, I posted it after the jump!
