Haha!! Okay, so a group called Xtranormal has a website where you can download a program called STATE and it allows you to make an online movie called Text-to-Movie. You just pick a cartoon platform and just type away. So I came across a video someone made using their program and its called, Hi, I’m a Tea-Partier. Check it out after the jump and be sure to vote Nov 2nd! [ Continue Reading ]
If you haven’t seen this video yet check it out. My friend Ronnie did a spoof on Obama and not just a spoof, but a musical rendition. It’s hilarious! Turn down the volume if you are at work;) Visit Ronnie’s website for more info about his other characters he has done. See the video after the jump.

There are plenty of people who can draw, but not so many who can engrave on scratchboards better than some can draw. Introducing Mark Summers, as a student at the Ontario College of Art in 1976, Mark Summers was introduced to scratchboard by the revered political cartoonist Duncan Macpherson.

Steven Lippman is a photographer, surfer and skateboarder hailing from California. His editorial works are full of movement and life. They tell stories without feeling like the models are overly posed and contrived. The pictures feel…clean, not because they aren’t provocative but because there’s this beautiful minimalism about the use of so much black and white and uncluttered background. In short, the portraits are engaging as hell and the editorials are gorgeous while the lifestyle and advertising shots sell me instantly. [ Continue Reading ]
