Sunday Illustrations: From snowboards to Wonderbras
- Kottke proclaims Minority Kart "possibly the GAGOAT (greatest animated GIF of all time)."
- I love the beautiful simplicity of this snowboarding poster.
- It’s not often that a Web design strikes me as particularly fresh, but the punchy, hand-illustrated intro for Fray.com makes a good go of it.
- From the vaults:
- Irony & good cheer come together in this set of Old Soviet Christmas cards. [Via]
- Flickr hosts a set of classic posters. [Via]
- Yes, it’s always illegal to kill a woman: the Daily Mail hosts a collection of outrageously politically incorrect advertisements from years past. As might be said on Conan, "Not cool, Zeus–not cool." [Via]
- Wacom’s new 12" Cintiq tablet/monitor gets some serious love from Gizmodo (a four-minute video demo followed by detailed text). [Via] Adobe evangelist Terry White loves it, too.
- Life imitates art:
- Speaking of real-life objects, Saatchi & Saatchi makes excellent use of "The Wonderbra Hills."
- Dig these icon mosaics for Teknograd Mac Support. (They just wouldn’t be the same using the blah-looking folder icons from Leopard.)
- Michael Sporn talks about those in the New York subway. For more on that subject, see the book Along the Way: MTA Arts for Transit. I always really dug the Irresistible Romance of Travel at Grand Army Plaza. [Via]
