Missed Connections on Craigslist are quite the thing. Sometimes they work wonders, often they give readers a great story, and a lot of times they are destined to remain missed. One thing they’re almost always good at, is being interesting. Illustrator Lucia Soto saw the missed connections, and created a visual record of them in the form of illustrations.
Swedish graphic designer Viktor Hertz (more) has a way with pictograms and music. Viktor has revisited his Pictogram Music Posters project from 2011 and created a new version, all set for 2017.

Playful and creative illustrations by Diego Cusano put doodles and objects in a mashup to create an impressive effect. Whether it’s pizza playing the moon for a city silhouette, or onions being fish, the addition of simple everyday objects to illustrations creates quite an effect. You can see more on the artist’s Instagram and Facebook.
How does one get hold of all those pop-culture monsters? Here’s a humorous IKEA style guide to movie monsters. The illustrations are the work of artist Ed Harrington.
Speaking by way of concept, Hellboy and Thor are very interesting, very powerful characters with great appeal. It’s a whole new level of badass when the two get into a mix, and HellThor comes forth. The illustration is the work of artist Zulkarnaen Hasan Basri, who spiced it up with a caption that read “”Every God in all the universe closed their eyes, and prayed to Thor.”
Coffee cup stains are those sucky problems that you allow to exist, because you love coffee, and the stains are just the side effects. Artist Carter Asmann probably does not see those stains as aberrations, but rather an opportunity that goes well with his stunningly detailed motorcycle illustrations.
Everyone’s so very scared of monsters, and yet those creatures prefer to live in the shadows. Those (frightful) poor guys have to live in the shadows because of their problems and the crippling anxiety that stems from these problems. The monsters can’t even get a shrink, because shrinks are anti-monster like that.
Pulp fiction covers are at their nostalgic best, and so are a number of Nintendo games. Artist Ástor Alexander put together those two greats and created a set of images of pulp fiction covers for Nintendo games, and a few more, but we’ll go with the majority of the set. They are pretty darn cool, and I’m pretty sure I want to read a Nintendo game inspired pulp fiction novel.
Nobody saw it coming, and Disney Princesses turned out to be monsters. On the plus side, they are very cute, very Disney-like monsters, and probably would be loved a hell lot more in some parallel universe. Well, in fact I’m sure the little monster princesses would find a lot of admirers in our own universe as well. The monster Disney princess illustrations are the work of artist Jennifer a.k.a. NoFlutter.
