that can irritate the hell out of you when they happen but in the illustrated form like this they make your day.
Thoka Maer, an illustrator from Berlin, has tumblr called it’s no biggie with an ongoing project of wonderful, whimsical illustrations. All of them are animated as stop-motion loops of sometimes real, sometimes surreal small graphic observations. The longer you look at them the more you appreciate their subtle humor and, dare we say, philosophical outlook that result directly from the choice of medium. We rarely notice all the daily loops but there they are.
Since we’ve been insanely busy and didn’t manage to prepare a post of our own work we leave you with a few of our favorite no biggies and recommend that you see the rest.
Today looked exactly like this:
I hate when people read over my shoulder on public transport. But I look over other people’s shoulders myself, so yeah.
This might not have happened to us:
But this sure did way back before we discovered AdBlock:
And of course we can’t ignore a dog illustration:

Working on a little illustration exhibition a while ago, we got stunned by the amazing-ness of a Warsaw-based illustrator, Marianna Oklejak. She presented a slightly surreal, bold and rhythmic story called Bum! Bum!! Bum!!!, which we subsequently got and pored over with delight.
We’d like to bring your attention to a nice project we’ve found on the web some time ago. It’s an identity for a Russian company that produces supercomputers and operating systems, T-Platforms. Their current webpage is quite hideous, but this proposed new identity is a glimmer of hope.
