"Listeners, we’ve just learned that the drawbridge construction site has been hit by graffiti vandals. The sheriff’s secret police suspect the feral dog pack to be responsible for the… very elaborately painted portrait of Alexander Hamilton wearing Groucho Marx nose glasses, with a caption that reads “FEDERALIST PAPERS,” but where “FEDERALIST” is crossed out, and “TOILET” is written in red.
"These dogs are possibly armed, and possibly rabid. They are definitely libertarian street artists, and that has police and city officials working double-time to solve this problem.”

One year ago today our fore-edge painting post and GIFs were posted to the Colossal Art and Design Blog. Our fore-edge painting post is still being forwarded around the world everyday and it is currently #12 most shared posts of all time on the Colossal.

These color lithographs illustrating amputation are from Jean Marc Bourgery’s monumental Traité complet de l’anatomie de l’homme. This work was originally published in eight volumes over the course of twenty-three years (1831-1854); Bourgery himself died before it was completed.
The illustrations were done by Nicholas-Henri Jacob, a student of the renowned French Revolution era painter Jacques Louis David.
This beautiful watercolor image is from the inside of one of the original covers of our copy of Robert Fludd’s Utriusque cosmi maioris scilicet et minoris metaphysica.
This is amazing.
somebody should write an essay comparing and contrasting tina from bob’s burgers and meg from family guy and explain why tina hit the mark for respectfully portraying the awkward teenage years and why meg is a huge fucking insensitive joke that isn’t even funny
Tina is a character, Meg is a punchline.
