How do you really feel about New York? Well, we all know how we're supposed to feel. After Milton Glaser created that iconic "I heart NY" logo in the '70s, we felt (almost) obligated to show the Big Apple some love. Sure, it's one of the best cities in the world and we would be a fool to not give her the respect she deserves (we are called My Modern Metropolis, right?) but don't we all… Continue
Glenn Jones aka Glennz is the funniest, wittiest, and most clever illustrator on the planet. It's impossible not to laugh at his hilarious illustrations. In many cases, he takes old school pop references and adds his own, unique twist on them. (Angry Birds going to anger management? Too funny.)
This isn't the first time we've featured work from the Auckland, New… Continue

You may know France-based Stéfan Le Dû for his incredibly creative Stormtrooper 365 series but you may not have known that back in October 2010, he introduced bounty hunters (Boba Fetts) into his legion of toys. His new series, titled 52 Weeks with the Fetts,… Continue
In this day and age, you can't turn on the TV without some sort of product placement being placed smack dab in your face. While some companies try to be subtle about it (Apple, except for Wall-E), still others are almost offensive, making sure that you're staring at their logo as often and as long as possible (ehem, Coke and Ford on American Idol).
London-based designer and illustrator Aled Lewis (of… Continue

If you're looking for a few good laughs, check out Brainless Tales, a once-a-day comic by a man named Marcus. He calls it "weird daily art masquerading as a daily comic." Search through his archives and you'll find some hidden gems, especially when he sneaks in some internet/pop culture references.
From his website: "Cartoons and games are fun to make, but they also consume a great deal… Continue
Though you can appreciate all of the hard work that went into creating these amazingly detailed papercraft scenes, you can't help but laugh when you see the curious cat checking out all the commotion. By papercraft artists People Too from Novosibirsk, Russia. Just what could he be thinking?
Though Gemma Correll's illustrations may look like they're only meant for children, read the text and you'll soon realize that they're actually meant for adults. Her somewhat acerbic sense of humor is felt in every piece and the way she brings to life animals like dogs, cats and dinosaurs will make you giggle with glee.
Gemma uses pens for drawing and then scans her images into Photoshop to… Continue
Paris vs New York is a clever blog that visually matches the subtle, cultural differences of two major cities. Cliché as they may be, the comparisons are a treat for anyone who has visited either metropolis or has been lucky enough to have lived in them. Love the tagline: A Tally of Two Cities. With the quick and viral success of this blog, I'm sure other city… Continue

We've all read a Golden Book when we were kids. They're a line of illustrated children's books.
These Golden Books here though, are not exactly suitable for children.
Josh Cooley, an artist at Pixar, has been whipping these up in his spare time for the past two years. Most are pretty self-explanatory. If I have to tell you the movie though, you won't get the joke.
Illustrated are famous scenes from movies like The… Continue
