Social Media Art: All Your Facebook Friends Sketched

There are so many things about this that are so cool; I don’t even know where to start! I remember a few years ago when we started seeing people create Twitter backgrounds made up of a collage of avatars from all their followers. I thought that was such a sweet way for ...

Stunning Slow Motion Video: Gelatin Cubes Jiggle Your Brain

I’ve written before about how much I don’t like Jello. Well, it’s not that I don’t like it; it’s more that I’m afraid of it. It’s like an abomination of food. It goes up there in the same category as tofu, Spam and white chocolate. I think aliens might have put those ...

Drawn Game Posters: Always Better Than Computer Generated

Usually when I create a new design, I like to switch up my tools every once in a while and not get stuck in Photoshop all the time. Illustrator is definitely a favorite as well, but I find myself working in Lightwave 3D more and more. It’s a great way to create ...

World’s Most Secure House: A Zombie Bunker

Creativity Takes Courage: 5 Ways To Build Your Courage

North American Dialect Chart: Ya’ll Talk Funny

Lately, for whatever reason, I’ve been talking to more and more of my Twitter friends on the phone. One of the first things people usually notice when they talk to me is that I have a very southern accent (gimme a break… geez, after all, I do live in Atlanta). For some ...
