First up is this article by a graphic designer guy named Adam J. Kurtz. If you're in any way contemplating pursuing graphic design as a career, you need to read this first. It's a very real look at what things are really like once you're qualified and out in the real world.

here for his youtube channel with all the covers he's done.
And now something I'm sure the world has been waiting for... a tap-dance modern fusion of Irish dance and dubstep! Forealz! I dig the soundtrack, too. When I think of tap-dancing the first thing that comes to mind is the presenter of Kideo in the early 90s who did the occasional tap-dance routine. And then I'd get bottle caps stuck on my shoes and stamp around the house and thought I was pretty good, actually.
Anyway, this is not like that. These guys are pretty talented. If I tried this I'd be flat on my face before the second tap.
Vaguely related: if anyone has come across any sort of ska-dubstep mix, please share.
And lastly, but in no way less cool, is Pokémon Battle Royale! I'm an unashamed Pokémon fan, and of course I love amazing illustration, so I thought this was super rad...
"151 artists have each selected and created original works of art inspired by each of the original 151 Pokémon. From Bulbasaur to Mew, each Pokémon is represented and injected with the artists’ own aesthetic, style, and creativity, exploring just what made those little Pokémon so interesting and fun to catch."
It was an art show in Mineapolis curated by Alyssa Nassner and Bryan Ische. Catch 'em all here.
