Art director and illustrator Troqman has introduced us to a very cool trend sweeping the web-cartoonbombing. Instead of photobombing pictures, this artist is taking it a step further and drawing cartoons to fit in with his surroundings.
Marge has had a makeover! Italian illustrator Alexsandro Palombo has treated us to his best collection of fashion satire yet, featuring none other than Mrs. Simpson. Regarded as ‘the father of fashion satire,’ Alexsandro is known for his controversial and unflattering illustrations of celebs and ‘calling out high fashion designers on stealing vs. borrowing designs from the past’.
French illustrator and comic artist Chris Panda has come up with a series of drawings that takes us deep inside our favourite cartoon characters. No not like, feelings deep inside. More like skeletons deep inside. It’s a simple but fun series involving characters like Iron Man, Fionna and Cake, Sailor Moon, and oh just take […]
So get this. There’s this witch with vices like drugs and depression. Her name is Megg. She has a talking cat named Mogg and an Owl-friend named, well, Owl. They also have a friend called Werewolf Jones. One day the three friends decide to kick out WW Jones (that’s his nickname, get with it) just […]
I couldn’t pick between all the real-life TV series my friends were imploring me to get into, so instead I chose a Japanese soccer cartoon I used to watch when I was a kid. Aoki Densetsu Shoot is hilarious, and contains all the stereotypical quirks one would expect from anime.
Haha, this is hilarious. When director Adam Patch’s wife got drunk and told him an lame joke about tortilla chips, he taped down what she said and made it into a cute cartoon. Hey, it’s pretty endearing stuff, especially with her slurred voice telling the joke. We can totally see more corny joke-to-cartoons coming right […]
Interested in getting yourself cartoonized? Send an email to animator and designer Natali Voorthuis, known for her ironic and humorous animations and her bittersweet pretty girls with ugly comic faces. For a small commission, she will create a cartoon drawing of you or the one you love. Score.
As an exercise in logo examination, I re-branded popular animated shows from the twentieth century as they would look if designed to market themselves as a hipster fashion label.
When my girlfriend first showed me this cartoon I thought something was happening to my body that was going to end badly. Superjail is so savage, funny, and well done, that I don’t know what to do with myself. I was talking to a friend at MoCCA Fest last week and he said his wife […]
How many dates happen every night in New York City? Some of them might be perfect and romantic. Some of them might be awkward or ridiculous. Some of them might be worth telling. This project started with a bunch of friends sharing their most memorable dates in comic strips. If you have a good story, please share.
Toondra animation studio is one of the better known animation studios in Russia creating animated music videos and commercial animation. This is the video for the song My Name Is Shnur by the legendary rock band, Leningrad.
Steve Cakebread has been a graphic designer and cartoonist for twenty years. His off-kilter cartoons, which are a wry comment on human condition, have been published in newspapers and surf titles like The Bulletin, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Good Weekend, The Melbourne Age, Australian Surfing Life, Fleur (Brazilian Surf Magazine). When I asked why he doesn’t take his cartoons to job interviews, he told me he thinks they might just be an acquired taste, and wouldn’t want to upset any delicate palates. I’m starting to understand what he was getting at.
The creators of Robot Chicken seem to have hit on an indestructible comedy formula that involves making claymation characters of either a television show, celebrity or popular myth and hoping something funny happens. If that doesn’t work the character is exploded, murdered, battered or sexually abused — which is fine because they’re not real.
