Guy, this is probably the closest thing you’ll find to a Batman utility belt. The Speakeasy Briefs — an invention dreamt up by best buds Jeff Schneider and Dan Goldman— are underpants that come with a private pocket for carrying whatever you can tuck inside.

What Marco Mazzoni can do with coloured pencils on a moleskine sketchbook is pretty amazing.

Buff Diss is an amazing street artist from Australia who creates insane masking tape graffiti. If you’re thinking the use of tape would be detrimental to the the designs he could create, you are very wrong. Diss’ designs are intricate, well thought-out and easily removeable. What more could you ask for? Although, I’m not too sure you would want to remove the works of art. They make a lot of the spaces look a lot better, in my opinion.

Nekofont. The internet is powered by cats, so you might as well write in cats too. If you’re secretly 8, like me, you’ll want to test it out with swears. Then you can get on with your life. (Not really, because you are writing words with cats).
David LaFerriere might just be the best dad ever. Since 2008, this graphic designer and dad has been illustrating his kid’s sandwich bags with cool drawings. He’s even photographed almost every illustrated bag, which comes to a staggering total of over 1,100 bags. You can even check out each individual bag on Flickr.
Let’s face it, everybody loves a good photobomb. But even better than a good one-off photobomb is this collection of some of the greatest photobombs of all time. Take a moment to soak in the hilarity.
Do you have trouble making yourself appreciate classic art? Then these photoshopped paintings of modern celebrities are a great way to slowly ease yourself into something more classy.
