Etch-A-Sketches are one of those childhood toys that never go out of style. If you're like most people, a few hours' worth of entertainment usually produced some pretty bad art, although it never really mattered. But there are the select few who are really good at Etch-A-Sketching. Like, really really good.
There are some things in the art world that flat-out stump us. How the heck does a 'Star Wars' sand castle or banana art come to life? We haven't the slightest clue, but that's exactly what makes this stuff awesome. And as we've recently learned, 3D chalk art fits the same bill.
If you're just now emerging from a deep slumber and have no idea what's going on in the world, here's an FYI: one of the greatest weeks of the year is upon us. (Cue the 'Jaws' theme song.) Happy Shark Week, shark fans!
Anyone who's ever been the victim of a pickup line can probably agree with this response: WOOF. While a lot of them can be pretty awful ("Do you have a bandaid? Cause I just scraped my knee falling for you."), all are straight up hilarious.
We've gotta hand it to the sign-makers of the world. They come up with some pretty creative stuff that makes us scratch our heads and get in boozy moods. But the street signers? Well, they're a whole 'nother funny animal.
Ahh, summer. 'Tis the season of watermelon art, diving fails and-- you guessed it-- belly flops. When we were kids, this pool move was awesome. But nowadays... who are we kidding? It's still (painfully) awesome!
Raise your hand if you love trampolines! We sure do, particularly because they're like an instant way to revisit our inner five-year-old. While trampolines are no doubt fun, they can be hilariously painful, too (see: epic fails). If you think about it, though, the trampoline concept is also straight up confusing. That's why these animals are all, "what the heck, man?!"
Let's imagine you're ordering a pizza online. Before clicking "order," have you ever noticed that small area where you can write comments or additional directions? As far as we're concerned, this feature is highly underused, because this is where pizza box art is born.
The restaurant biz is super competitive, which is why standing out from every other place is a key compenent to success. Of course a good restaurant should have great food, but first impressions (aka the kind that happen before you even walk into an establishment) are often overlooked. This is where creative signs come into play.
Optical illusions can play some really weird tricks on our brains. We think we're looking at one thing and then... sike! It's something else. Honestly, what the heck. But you know the best type of illusions? The photograph kind, because they can be all sorts of awesome, strange and funny
Getting a tattoo is an awesome way to express oneself, but a decent amount of thought should go into getting inked because, well, they're permanent. We'll take a wild guess and say you might not be a fan of that eyelid tattoo in a couple decades, either.
Listen everyone, there's a huge dilemma on hand. The 4th of July is only a day away, and we have one question for you: what the heck are you gonna wear?! If you're like us and have zero idea, don't panic. We're here to help.
