High-end Crocodile Fashion

I imagine this is how high-end crocodiles would rock their sweaters.

Inspiration From Vintage Childrens Books

I forgot how children’s books can really stir up the imagination. The other night I was looking for a book that I had when I was a kid but couldn’t remember anything about the title, author, or publication date. What really stuck out at me was the illustration style. Along the way I discovered these illustrations from vintage children’s books.

More sources for vintage children’s books inspiration:

And the book that I was looking for was Drummer Hoff from 1968 illustrated by Ed Emberley. I love this book so much that I bought a signed copy on eBay after figuring out what I was looking for.

Browser Wars Graphic

This is certainly the most creative way to show the battle of the browsers in the Internet space.

I stumbled upon this on fffound.com, my favorite source for random images that everyone is buzzing about. I have no idea where it came from but it is a little out of date with the lack of Google’s Chrome in the mix.

Inspiration: Scrapzilla By Andy Council

Stumbled upon Andy Council’s portfolio today where I saw this…

Scrapzilla by Andy Council

The title is Scrapzilla, appropriately enough. He has other similar pieces like Rail Rooster and Junk Robot.

Andy has lots of other intricate illustrations in his complete portfolio. It blows my mind how someone can think up something like this.
