Anonymous asked: Why are you so vulgar and obscene? That's really cheap and easy humor to draw the nasty things you do and it is really disrespectful to the players on the cards. Some day you will have to stand before God and be punished for all of these immoral things you are drawing and saying. Please quit now and only draw decent comics.

You know, maybe you’re right…maybe we should grow up and CHANGE THE DIRECTION we’ve been headed. God is always RIGHT BEHIND US, LOOKING OVER OUR SHOULDER and we don’t want to RUB HIM THE WRONG WAY. And it’s not like he invented dicks or anything, right? It’s all all our fault that people have to see dicks, and we should SHOW THE WORLD OUR MANHOOD by taking responsibility for our SELFISH ACTIONS. 

So from now on our jokes will be clean and our KNOBS WILL BE POLISHED. I promise, the DICKS ARE BEHIND US.

The classified ad section of a newspaper is one of the last places you’d expect to find an astonishing optical illusion, which is part of what makes this one so amazing. This entire newspaper page is a Corona Kitchen advertisement created by Colombia-based creative director Felipe Salazar. By cleverly manipulating text size and spacing, Salazar made it appear as though a tiny 3D kitchen has been embedded in the columns of text. Look carefully and you’ll see countertop, cabinets, a stove and a range hood.

Here’s one last awesome piece of anamorphic artwork for 2013. Artists Daniel Siering and Mario Shu wrapped a tree in Potsdam, Germany and then spray-painted it using a deceptively simple trompe l’oeil technique to make a large section of the trunk disappear. When viewed from the right direction, it appears that most of the tree is hovering in the air above its stump.

Click here for a brief video that gives an even better sense of just how convincing Daniel and Mario’s floating tree illusion is.

I got into a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, “I’m going to mop the floor with your face.” I said, “You’ll be sorry.” He said, “Oh yeah? Why?” I said, “Well, you won’t be able to get into the corners very well.” Emo Philips (via archiemcphee)

Hey looks, it’s a box full of money, what’s so awesome about that?
It’s awesome because it isn’t really a cardboard box full of money. It’s a wooden sculpture and it’s the work of American artist Randall Rosenthal. Randall uses nothing but carefully carved Vermont white pine and skillfully applied acrylic paint to make pieces of wood perfectly mimic stacks of newspapers, comic books, trading cards and currency. The box of cash pictured here began as three pieces of wood glued together to form a solid block.

One of the most amazing things about Randall’s artwork is that he never works from photos or models, but instead relies only on a mental image as his guide.

Click here for a complete series of process photos of Randall’s amazing cardboard box full of cash.

Check out lots more of Randall Rosenthal’s wonderfully deceptive sculptures at the Bernarducci.Meisel.Gallery and via Sawmill Creek.
