More Funnies, I Think


I have a sense of humor that leans in the direction of the absurd, the whimsical, the odd, and the verbally clever.  Strange imagery of the discombobulated nature also works for me.  But what appeals to me may not appeal to others.  Here is work by a  few more off the wall types.

Hyperbole and a Half




Allie Brosh is the lovely, sweetly, fiercely makerly mind behind the cartoony-storytelling blog Hyperbole and a Half.  Her drawings are whacked out and spot on; her stories so fey; and her writing a kind of akimbo window into a universe so delightfully strange.


S. Harris

I've been enjoying Mr. Harris' work for years.  His love for science combined with an intense sense of whimsy makes me fall in love with science all over again every time.


Also cool is the website Cotton Expressions, Ltd (purveyors of the "world's most extraordinary science t-shirts").  Here's some text from their About Us page:
"We're scientists, astronomers, artists, craftsman, and naturalists—and occasionally, we're comedians. But most importantly, we're a close-knit team of people committed to creating superior-quality imprinted apparel with stunning designs you won't find anywhere else on the planet.

Launched in 1981 by Matthew B. Alschuler (President), Cotton Expressions has successfully served world-renowned museums, planetariums, scientific and astronomical societies, and a variety of retail outlets for 29 years.

Whether it's science humor, endangered wildlife, the periodic table of the elements, or something completely different (a glow-in-the-dark star chart, perhaps?), Cotton Expressions has the cutting-edge t-shirt and sweatshirt designs you're looking for. Remarkable, new designs are leaping off our presses all the time!

Dresden Codak - Aaron Diaz

I am still getting my mind around the web comics of Aaron Diaz - always the fate of a latecomer to an artist's work.  But the t-shirts he has for sale at TopatoCo never fail to crack me up.
