I sure enjoyed Garbage Pail Kids when I was younger. I really like the concept of these "Where are they Now" variety (no matter how disturbing it might be to see some of them in a more realistic version than the cartoon/doll-based variety). And, I love how they've made a couple of the characters be professionally active with their... ability/condition. Be sure to see them all at the the website of Jake Houvenagle Brandon Voges. #
I really like DKNG's work, and own multiple prints from them. I also have a soft spot for patches (though, admittedly, I never do anything with them, apart from put them in a little "happy box", and look at them every now and then). As it is, the venn diagram represented by this new patch essentially guaranteed I would buy it. $6? Done. #
I thoroughly enjoyed Beth Dean's thoughts, insights, and suggestions in this fantastic article. If you have anything to do with design, or interacting with other people via a computer, I highly recommend you read it. Here's just a tease of one of my favorite parts (though it was filled with so many awesome elements, I've saved a copy for myself).
People completing seemingly straightforward tasks do so in a variety of contexts and life circumstances. Humanity can be sad, complicated and messy. We don’t stop being human when we go online. Sometimes even when you’re trying to make something with the best intentions, something can go terribly wrong. Sometimes the very tools you create to protect people cause harm. What can we do?
Really. It's so good. #
I'm kicking myself that I didn't notice these earlier. I really like DKNG's work, and already own some of their work. Despite missing out on some of their prints, I still just snagged a copy of the one I would have bought, if coach would have put me in fourth quarter. There are so many fantastic designs, you have to look through them yourself. I'm a hoarder, so I've included some of my favorites here for your viewing. Really, fantastic work, yet again, by DKNG. #
This is a bit out of my norm, but I'm looking forward to this game. I've played other games by Simogo, and have really liked them. The concept and artwork behind this are appealing, and I find myself sucked in. #
These are gorgeous designs submitted for a contest for Chinese versions of The Lord of the Rings. There are so many nice touches. Looking around Jian's other work, these seem slightly out of style for him, yet still close enough. I'd probably buy a nice trio of these if they were prints, even if only available in Chinese. #
Simple, straightforward input on people like you who are clearly under the wrong impression that you're a storyteller. You're not. Probably. #
Really clever design, especially on that upper-right one. Sure, it has a hint of renaissance-era type, but I love how the type hints at that classic shield form. The added bonus here is the accompanying vector files. Awesome. I came upon these after seeing Arno's stamps in the Dribbble 5th Anniversary blog post. Looking through his work on here, I see these aren't a fluke. Well done. #
A great concept, and a shame that it's just a self-project. I've thoroughly enjoyed this year's World Cup, and these would be a great commemoration of that. #
I've spent too much time looking over this diagram, seeing how different dogs and breeds are related and connected. I'm not so much of a dog person that I'd want a print of this, but maybe you are. Regardless, it's really cool. #
