Illustrator Brecht Vandenbroucke pokes fun at our addiction to social networks, smartphones, and an ultra-connected life in this series of satirical illustrations, using dark humour and a deceptively childlike style, to critique the excesses of modern society. You can also check out more of Brecht’s creations on Instagram. Awesome stuff! 🙂

Vincent Van Gogh: Just when you think you’ve seen it all, The Unemployed Philosophers Guild, makers of the ‘Little Thinkers‘ line of plush dolls of historical, artistic, and literary figures including Kurt Vonnegut, Edgar Allan Poe, Leonardo da Vinci, Eleanor Roosevelt, Karl Marx, Nikola Tesla etc, have released a very unique Vincent van Gogh doll. What makes the van Gogh doll remarkable from the others is that the left ear can be removed and reattached – the perfect gift for an art lover with an ironic sense of humour. Love it! 🙂
Garbage Pail Kids: If you were a kid growing up in the 1980s, the Garbage Pail Kids collector cards probably ruled your life. Between trashy humour and bad taste, art director Jake Houvenagle and photographer Brandon Voges decided to pay tribute to the famous Garbage Pail Kids, with ‘Where Are They Now?’ photographically recreating the illustrations of these twisted yet beloved cards. Love these so much!!
