I think if I were to get married, this would be 100% the wedding ring I want. Yep. Adulting!! (via)
Though I’m not a fan of their coffee (it’s my last resort when there’s nothing else coffee..) I do love this Tumblr of Starbucks sleeves sketched on to transform them into awesome portraits.
This design is fantastic!! My keyring’s pretty slim these days but if I had more, I’d be into this.
These tiny creations are so delicate and wonderful. I don’t think I could ever have the patience for them.
I’m constantly amazed at how creative people can be when given a restricted set of materials to use to create something. Design Within Reach have a ‘champagne chair’ contest each year, and these are this year’s winners. Super!
Air safety is no joke.. but these are pretty funny, c’mon.
Pixar artists turns R-rated movies into kid’s book illustrations. GOLDEN.
While we’re in the Disney realm.. here’s some lovely Baymax cosplaying as other Disney characters. The best.
Rain-activated sidewalk art! Of course someone in Seattle made this.
New wave rock stars as Marvel heroes was built for my brain.

Absurd and character-based street art are my favourite kinds! I love these captures of some from artist Filthy Luker.
When the Eisners (the Oscars of gaming) announced their digital media nominations, some people felt like there were webcomics that were looked over. io9 decided to compile a list of 51 awesome webcomics and it’s basically a bloody great list of all the great webcomics going on out there. Check it out, especially if you’ve had just a passing interest in comics published online. Many of my faves (Nimona, Girls with Slingshots, Lucky Penny) are on there!
Terrific posters from the Australian Human Rights Commission’s “Know the Line” campaign which aims to prevent and reduce the harm of sexual harassment in Australian workplaces. I love how basic the graphics of them is, but they hit home nicely. For instance:

I don’t know that I have a multitude of metal objects needing something to be stored in/on, but I would sure try and find more if it meant I could store them on this:
I may have lost it when it got to sound bagels. “Better Names For Things”
Some terrifically smarty pants design on this “Resum-ale” package. Chuckle.
