I would love to save the artist whose work entertained me during my lunch today for a later post, but 1. it’s just too good to hold back and 2. it’s so clever, I’m sure I’d be immediately scooped by everyone else!
Illustrator Ed Harrington has created these highly desirable Ikea-style assembly instructions for some very popular movie monsters. His captions are almost as good as his illustrations!
Although I tried, I couldn’t find out anything about Ed Harrington or what gives him his inspired, jaw-droppingly incongruous ideas. I’m afraid his imaginative and very funny work will have to be enough.
As fantastic as the Ikea series is, when I started looking around his Tumblr and his website, I found vast quantities of geeky goodness I couldn’t resist sharing. Here’s just a few of the genius illustrations he’s done. They are so simple, but so very funny, I want to plaster them all over my (already geeked-out) office!
