Selfies are so 2013. If you want to up your Facebook profile game, you gotta have a watercolor painting of yourself as a sloth! UK-based illustrator Hector Janse Van Rensberg, more popularly known as ‘Shitty-Watercolour’, chose 50 random Facebook friends to be the subject of his next series: Facebook profile photos turned into sloths. He then painted over their human faces, morphing them into slow-moving but adorable mammals.

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Products on Wednesday 18 June 2014

No need to impatiently wait for the clock to strike 5 o’clock, you can already start boozing in the office with the help of some rather stealthy accessories. FlaskTie and FlaskScarf are two quirky inventions that discreetly store your alcohol rations. They might look like a plain tie and scarf, but there’s actually a valve, from which you can sip on the drink of your choice.

We’re all just a bunch of funny humans obsessed with our little worlds. And when not concerned with ourselves and our receding hairlines, […]

By Low Lai Chow in New Illustration on Tuesday 4 February 2014

Buzzfeed illustrator and writer Jen Lewis posted this wicked batch of pictures, imagining what Disney princesses would look like without the help of that ubiquitous digital doctoring technology that’s going on all the time.

Are these the greatest textbook doodles ever done?

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Illustration on Thursday 3 October 2013

Textbooks are boring but doodles in textbooks are fun. We spotted this awesome collection of textbook doodles (I prefer to call it Textbook Art) from RocketNews24 and we can’t seem to get enough of them. All taken from the same student, who goes by the name “Chanta” on Twitter, these pictures feature both the before […]

Guys with badly Photoshopped girlfriends

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Tuesday 24 September 2013

This is self-explanatory: guys posing next to imaginary girlfriends, made possible with that magical software of all, Photoshop. We don’t know whether to laugh more at their blatant non-display of mad Photoshop skills or, well, pretty much everything about the pictures. Probably both.

NYC art show by Chris Georgalas and Peter J. Ketchum

Contributions Reader Find

By TNC Gallery in New Events on Wednesday 10 October 2012

APP ART is a quirky exhibit of new works by Chris Georgalas and Peter J. Ketchum at the scruffy TNC Gallery on 1st Ave, New York. With warped sensibilities Ketchum investigates the past refelected in vintage printed matter: ads, card games, matchbooks and black and white photos from the 1860s to the 1960s. In repurposing these words and images, the new work becomes uniquely his own. Actually, who else would claim them? Georgalas combines images with found objects – a full BED! – to make funny, melancholy, challenging pictures. He’s been called the new Duchamp. Yikes! The exhibition runs until October 26.

London based Bif creates creates really great promos and commercials. Elements is just something they did for fun, and like much of their work, is wonderfully weird and funny. I think work like this is emblematic of the new visual possibilities offered by more accessible and powerful CG software.

Hungover Owls

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in Cool Websites on Wednesday 8 June 2011

Not just since Harry Potter have owls been so popular. Hardly any hipster girl is to be seen without her owl chain these days! These nocturnal creatures represent wisdom and dignity. All the more funny, then, is the idea that the people from Hungover Owls had. They take random pictures of knackered looking owls and combine them with a funny ‘hungover remark’. The result certainly triggers a giggle. Or three.
