If you were looking right at me right now, I would be mouthing the word ‘wow’. Can’t even imagine the planning that went into constructing and getting something like this done.
All the things the ride with you are part of the imagatorium of your brain. Great way to decorate an apartment.
UPDATE: A little about Chairman Ting:
We love our obnoxious and silly name, however we don’t have ginormous industrial factories around the world pumping out mass produced consumer products. We are in fact just a tiny (well, frankly speaking, just a dude and a dudette) experimental illustration workshop based in Vancouver, founded by Carson Ting and Denise Cheung. More here…
These are all just so beautifully awesome. Missed Connections are fantastic enough, but adding this element of interpretation just takes it to the next level of yippee! Illustrations are by Sophie Blackall. Check out a whole bunch of them here.

Love these pages from Dan Moyer’s sketchbook. Contemplating taking a crack at an exercise like this myself. Also liked his Everything I ate or drank> sketches too.

Lovingly and sweetly colored by Dan Britt and Joe Pelling, and as always, be sure to check out some of Dan’s other work on Vimeo

Designed by cartoonist Chris Ware and animated by John Kuramoto. Yes, the same Chris Ware who did this. This was put together for the “This American Life – Live!” Spring event, which you can listen to here.
What’s “This American Life – Live!”?
Ira Glass hosts an episode of the radio program, in front of a live audience…and records it for those who couldn’t attend to hear. The show is performed onstage by some of our favorite contributors: Dan Savage, Starlee Kine, and Mike Birbiglia tell stories. Plus a very special appearance by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
Love. The story of Little Red Riding hood done in infographics. Nice work, Tomas Nilsson
Process is porn. (And that screen press rig is fairly sexy too.)
Stanley Donwood has created all of Radiohead’s album and poster art since 1994. I get my fact(ions) from Wikipedia.
