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.
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.
Finally, a gift worth giving to mother on Mother’s Day! The FlaskScarf is a clever invention that lets you sneak a midday swig of your favourite alcoholic beverage while staying classy and warm. It was invented by Utah-based Shawn Baxter, the same guy brought us the FlaskTie – a tie that lets you drink at […]
Ahead of Groovin The Moo 2014, the ‘musical odyssey’ that kicks off around regional Australia on April 25, we were lucky enough to be able to catch up with Julian Hamilton, one half of Australian electro-pop duo The Presets, who are amongst this year’s headliners.
Isn’t there’s something so alluring about looking at your reflection in a shop window, peeking through peoples’ curtains, or looking over doll-sized houses when flying over picturesque towns somewhere in Eastern Europe? We’re all just a bunch of funny humans obsessed with our little worlds. And when not concerned with ourselves and our receding hairlines, […]
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. They’re so outlandish, they’re funny. Obviously, Nicolas Cage makes a surprise appearance.
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 […]
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.
Translocation, a book by multi-award winning photographer George Logan, is a collection of wonderful pictures. This work seems to have a funny appearance but the real meaning of this project is to let people know how important it is to eliminate suffering and preserve wildlife in its free and wild state. To complete Translocation, Logan had […]
Sometimes humor at the simplest form can really hit the spot. Check out these funny monkey faces and brighten your day. I think the descriptions are just as funny as the pictures, and also somewhat informative on why the monkey looks the way it does.
Finally…the moves to thrill (ehhm). Bonus is, by studying this brilliant step-by-step instructional hard enough, you won’t just be whipping some moves under your belt. Get this hitting your browser, team it with a serious enough frown and you’ll even fool Mr Boss Man into thinking you’re the busy little bee in those dragging corporate […]
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.
Our friends over at Buzzfeed have compiled a wickedly fun collection of 27 Things That Are Not Like The Others, with the disclaimer that ‘Something about each these pictures just seems to stick out.’ Indeed they do. Priceless. [via Buzzfeed]
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.
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.
