Ogden-based Chris Bodily‘s illustrated and cartoon-like works containing beyond-normal children and and an array of creatures and monsters have been a fixture of the local art scene since becoming a professional freelance artist right out of college, earning him a place in several exhibitions.

Bodily’s illustrations are simultaneously raw, funny, messy, cartoonish, and heartbreaking. A big goofy monster holding prescriptions and wanting his heart to be seen with allusions to happiness scribbled on the wall says volumes about the human condition.

Sydney based Tony Papesh is a freelance animator/ illustrator/ designer/ artist from the San Francisco Bay Area. His passion is character animation but he is skilled in mostly any form of animation such as: 2D animation, 3D animation, hand-drawn animation, motion graphics, stop motion, and rotoscoping. He gets inspiration from cartoons, comics, and video games and a lot of the playfulness of these mediums shows through his personal art.

FINE ART EFFORT BY TEAM MACHO

by Ariadna Zierold

Team Macho is a collaborative illustration and fine art effort composed of Lauchie Reid, Chris Buchan, Nicholas Aoki, and Stephen Appleby-Barr. They create wildly playful and humorously crude works that range from rough illustration to polished paintings. They currently occupy a large studio in Toronto, Canada where their joint efforts are divided equally between illustrating for very fine clients and preparing gross quantities of highly imaginative artwork for galleries in Canada and abroad.

Designed to subvert any sense of singular authorship, their production is a collaborative form of process art by which an individual paints a portrait or scene informed by elements from his compatriots’ portfolios. The result is an endless reinterpretation of each other’s point of view. The visual components of each work, however thematic or peripheral, become a pleasant surprise to both viewer and creator. The unspoken element that is conversely integral to Team Macho’s process is their piecemeal approach to collaboration; every member has contributed to each work even if someone’s hand never touches the actual work.

Rachel Harrison’s work draws from a wide range of influence, wittily combining art historical and pop cultural references through a diverse play of materials. Grotesque and funny, Harrison’s humour derives from its carefully structured, yet open-ended suggestion, each element building up to a plausible punch line. Using visual language as a subversive tool, Harrison parodies appropriating styles and motifs with subtle knowingness, wielding artistic process as a mode of investigation.

Southeast L.A.-based AJ Dungo was born in Fort Myers, Florida. He always strives to create interesting atmospheres or capture feelings that viewers can relate to or have a reaction to.

Personal experience is a huge influence for him. Dungo tends to extract some of his most interesting images from funny or poignant moments in his own life. AJ is a big believer of the saying; “reality is stranger than fiction.” That seems to drive a lot of his work.

Kim and Kris: The Divorce So Expected it was Unexpected

8bdc15d537b34ce6e706dc14fe812863 width 600x Kim and Kris: The Divorce So Expected it was Unexpected kim and kris funny or die divorce

Seriously? A $10m wedding and you assholes get divorced that quick? Really? How fucking much do you hate other humans who work their asses off each day or who are broke as shit and sad and depressed and just $10 would help them eat tonight, and you assholes spend $10m on absolutely nothing. You might as well have spent $10m on a brick and threw it at a hungry family. Garbage. These people are absolute garbage. We know it was all done for the all mighty buck, about $18m bucks to be exact, but all the companies, product placement, and just horrible people behind this whole charade should stand trial in front of a family who is out of work and doesn’t give a shit about the E! Network.

And we like that Funny or Die has created a slideshow on the Fairytale Divorce.

A website of Airline Safety graphics… with the truth attached

Posted from The Citrus Report

There really isn’t anything more bizarre than airplane safety graphics. Seriously, they are the most devoid of feeling graphics and cartoons you can ever find. Luckily for us, there is a place in this world wide web that has commentary attached to each amazing “safety tip” you find on an airplane.

Like:

Amazing.
