Tyler Stout’s Star Wars Posters
Taken from OMGPosters Well, these are kind of a big deal. The year is about to wrap up with one of the biggest poster releases the internet has seen in awhile. Tyler Stout created a mind-blowing poster for each of the three Star Wars films, plus variants. The main editions are 24″ x 36″ screenprints, have editions of 850, and will cost $50 each. The variants have editions of 250 and will...
Nice video tribute to Pixar, weaving together footage from all their films. Pixar to me is just on this whole other level, above everything else in digital animation these days. The art is awesome, but it’s the stories they come up with that sets them apart from the rest. via kottke
Revenge of the Nerds
Patton Oswalt is my hero. Wake up, Geek Cultue, Time to Die, great article on hardcore geekery from Wired. I was too young to drive or hold a job. I was never going to play sports, and girls were an uncrackable code. So, yeah—I had time to collect every Star Wars action figure, learn the Three Laws of Robotics, memorize Roy Batty’s speech from the end of Blade Runner, and classify each...
Deal with it.
And rightfully so. If you’re technically, a beard with a pretty menacing handle-bar mustache, you can really “not give a fuck about anything”. He’s got a license not to because that’s how awesome he is. Tom Selleck and King Kong combined, ain’t got nothin’ on him. In addition to that, he’s got a monocle hidden in there somewhere so yeah, any...

I know this is quite old but this is still funny as shit. Comic Sans answers back. When people need to kick back, have fun, and party, I will be there, unlike your pathetic fonts.

Sci-Fi Ruined My Life
Back when I was a kid, in elementary school to be exact. I thought that when the year 2000 kicked in, everything would look like a big, fucking Mad Max movie. I really did. Gas would be the prime commodity. Lord Humungus would rule all over the landscape. People would dress like Motley Crue from their early years and everyone would be at each other’s throats. Hey, don’t judge me. I was a kid, an...
Print is not dead
Jessica Helfand wrote a touching letter to her daughter Fiona back in March 2000. Here’s the full article by the way. It’s a good read for designers and parents in general. I urge you to read it. Here are a few excerpts from the article. Remember that anything that looks cool probably won’t look cool for very long. Remember that very long means, well, probably about a ...
