We love the creations of illustrator Joe Stone whose new series pokes fun at modern, everyday bad habits (c’mon, we’re all guilty of it) related to the use of our beloved phones. Funny ’cause they’re so true – Happy Monday! 🙂

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! 🙂
Dismaland: So we lost our shit when we saw street artist Banksy had finally unveiled Dismaland, a satirical group exhibition inspired by Disneyland. Dismaland brings together many artists from around the world in a giant parody of our consumer society as seen through a trashy, decaying theme park. After rumours and first photos began popping up on the web, the Dismaland project released an official website presenting a map of the park, but also the list of artists including Damien Hirst, Josh Keyes, Escif, Axel Void, Brock Davis, Espo, Mike Ross and of course Banksy. The Dismaland exhibition, located in the Weston-super-Mare in the UK, is open from 22nd August until 27th September 2015. Amazeballs! – LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE 🙂
