Creative Blogs to Survive By

We are in that part of the semester where we could use some levity. The past week has been hard for many of us, but rather than get stressed out, I thought I would share some of my favorite creative blogs that never fail to make me think and smile. Consider this my list of "Blogs to Survive By." (And by all means, add your own!)

Garfield minus Garfield

This blog is genius. By carefully cropping Garfield out of each of Jim Davis’ comic strips, we are left with "the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb."

Photoshop Disasters

The only thing more pretentious than touting design is critiquing design! It wasn’t long after following this blog that I began to realize how artificial all of the images are that we see: even ones that don’t need to be!
Here is one of my favorites:

On the Wheel

Drawn by CCT-alumni Megan McCabe, On the Wheel is about "The smallest hammie in the office."
