Hey-o it’s Wednesday so I’ve got a brand new wallpaper and this week’s is really great. It comes all the way from Warsaw, Poland was created by a lovely lady named Agata Nowicka. Ms. Nowicka has this really amazing kind of pixelated style that’s very realistic but still very playful at the same time. She basically creates the kind of stuff you wish you could have made when you were using Paint as a 6th grader, she’s on another level.
For her wallpaper she went totally weird, and I think it fits in with some of today’s posts quite well. Your guess is as good as mine as to what it means, but basically you’ve got a woman trying to get dressed but her dresser is filled with all kinds of slimy sea creatures! And just to get the joke out of the way, there appears to not be any crabs…
I can’t remember how I found out about The Museum of Modern Tweets, but it’s one of the weirdest/best things I’ve come across in a while. The illustrator and designer, Odessa Begay, started illustrating tweets from celebrities, but imagined them in a very different way then they were probably meant to be.
My two favorites are above, just for the amount of creativity it must have taken to really a) find these tweets, and b) create the bizarre images that go with them. I kinda’ hope that Nick Jonas does own a rocket pack and a pony that eats bundles of cash.
There’s really no info on this project, not that there needs to be, it’s just a hysterical combination of weird plants and cacti and succulents mixed together with kitties. Don’t even think about it, just absorb the oddness and accept it.
I got an email the other day from Micah over at Devicious letting me know that they teamed up with Skinny Ships, aka Richard Perez, on a totebag and it turned out pretty rad. It’s got kind of this contemporary, retro design that reminds me of Chris Ware’s work, which is obviously a compliment. I think it’s hysterical that the front says “The Amazing Practical Totebag”, and then smaller on the bottom it has “See Flipside For Details”. Once you flip it over it gives you an owner’s manual on how to properly use your tote… genius! They’re only $18 and you can get one by clicking here.
Also don’t forget that Richard did an awesome desktop wallpaper which you can grab for yourself by clicking here.
First impressions are everything, and viewing the opening splash page of Nick de Jardine’s portfolio site you’re immediately confronted with the amazing image above. Honestly he could be trying to sell moldy cakes and I’d click through to see what flavors he had in stock. It’s even better when you see it in your full browser, just this immense redness with some perfect curated typefaces. Excellent work.
