Father & Sons’ Design Workshop

Dorkly have found an artist/illustrator able to do something all dads try to do with their children a few times in their lives, validate their imagination. The Father & Sons’ Design Workshop is a project where Thomas Romain (Father) makes incredible anime-ified works of character art from his sons (& Sons’). It would be unwise to go through this life without seeing a mess of felt-tip and tube bodies get somehow transformed into Gundam Peter Quill. So check out the Twitter and Patreon for regular updates on the drawings. Every time you click, one of his boys gains the courage to colour outside the lines.

Celebrities with younger versions of themselves

Celebrities are in the public eye on such a continual basis, you may never appreciate where they came from compared to where they end up. So take a moment to appreciate how time has ravaged their features by either clicking the picture or right here.

Movie Titles With One Letter Removed

Finding Emo
An insufferable teenage fish runs away from home. His father contemplates searching for him.

Artist Austin Light, has made a whole bunch of illustrations completely turning the film industry on its head. Or he was a little lazy during spelling class. One of the two.

Marvel X Hip-Hop

“-Comics and hip hop share a common narrative: they’re all about the underdogs struggling, striving and persevering against overwhelming odds.” Not to mention they both know their way around a shootout.

Over the years, Marvel have re-imagined a helicarrier’s worth of classic hip-hop album covers with their iconic characters. Click the picture to see them. Although since I couldn’t find a single site that held every revised artwork and a side-by-side with the original album cover, I’m just going to link a few sites here and here and here. Enjoy.

JagoDibuja

Art should never have to apologise for being art. Sometimes it’s provocative, unabashed and liberated. And yes, sometimes it doesn’t know when to put some trousers on.

Jago Dibuja‘s drawings some may describe as “risqué”. Some may them describe as evidence of a healthy appreciation of the human body. But just because this Spanish artist’s work may show more skin that a KFC bargain bucket, doesn’t mean the deliberate skill in his line work, his graceful shading and his glow-strengthened black outlines is something to be taken for granted. His craft is one that’s been well developed. And though I know nothing about this artist, I’m 100% confident I’ve used the correct pronoun.

Click the link to look through Jago Dibuja’s site where he posts regular fan art sketches of various gaming, comic and original characters, both in basic shading and full colour. Also check out his comic series, Living with Hipster Girl & GamerGirl, following the awkward life experiences of 2 women, Sophie (the hipster) & Erika (the gamer) living with their male friend, Artur. Other friends Elly (a nervous purple haired pre-teen) and Clara (a faux-feminist with a bat) habitually join the fun, in a world where loose fitting, underwear exposing jeans and at least 75% of your cleavage on display is seemingly a government requirement. Suffice to say, Artur’s life is like the 5 minutes after the first 5 minutes of every hentai, as told through 1 or 2 comic panels. And he even offers them in Spanish AND English. Now isn’t that thoughtful.
