As a hooj fan of Indiana Jones and illustration this cartoon just makes me smile and smile.

Dan Hipp is an amazing talent who mashes up zombies with TinTin and Star Wars through to Super Mario Bros. and back again. Love it!

I put in on a #FF0080 background to bring out the colours.

On my desktop this week… ‘Thirteen Senses/Crystal Sounds’ by Patrick Leger

I don’t know too much about Patrick Leger other than I first saw his work in Wired and really dig his old-timey comic stylings.

This latest work is the cover art for the album ‘Crystal Sounds‘ by a band called Thirteen Senses.

It’s a very evocative vision he’s created, and standing here about to become a dad and doing some of the most exciting work I’ve ever done, I feel that I can kind of relate.

On my desktop this week… ‘t is for tomato’ from ‘AlphaDeath’ series by Philip Tseng

Got a bambino on the way, so I’m getting interested in alphabets and numbers.

It was in searching for some leftfield alphabets to put up in Baby’s room, that I found the ‘AlphaDeath‘ series on the Minicubby portfolio site of one Philip Tseng.

The premise of ‘AlphaDeath‘ is a fruit for each letter being killed. Probably not appropriate for the use I originally had in mind but neat nonetheless.

On my desktop this week… “Funny Funny” by NIARK1

This splendid totem of absurdity and goof is by NIARK1, an ace illustrator from Paris.

His work often features intense and colourful characters. It’s fun and it’s rich and more can be seen at www.niark1.com.

This particular illustration is the perfect accompaniment to full-on week.

I originally found it on Behance.

On my desktop this week… ‘Street Bubble’ by Unknown*

'Street Bubble' by Unknown*

I don’t know who this is by, which annoys me becuase I like it.

Usually, I like to say a bit about the illustration, photo or what ever it is. All I can say is that I found it on ffffound.

In an earlier post, I wondered if these desktops reveal anything about my state of mind. Not sure. This illustration reminds me of times when you find yourself thinking so hard about something that you wander almost aimlessly, or when you smell something that triggers a memory and transport you to an earlier time or aniother place in your life.

* ‘Street Bubble’ is what I’ve called it. If anyone finds out the designer, let me know. I think it may be a book cover.
