Malaysian artist Chow Hon Lam makes us laugh with these clever, witty illustrations. Lam is a modern legend over at Threadless, where his prints can be found on countless t-shirts.

"I believe that everything should have a story behind it, no matter if they are an object, an animal or food," says Lam. "I always try to create a story for them. I guess they must have something to say, but they just can't speak. Trust me, I try to communicate with them!

"Actually all the ideas don't come easy, I hope people can enjoy them and appreciate them. All criticisms are welcome. Thanks from deep in my heart."

These are great. Are they all from the same artist? Darth Vader has to be my favorite.
