Must Follow: If you haven’t already, you have to check out this latest parody Twitter account: @NotTildaSwinton. Tweets consist of random, weird, poetic, bizarre Not-Tilda- Swintonisms. Unfortunately, the funny duo behind the account, Eli Yuden and Carey O’Donnel, will no longer be tweeting from the account, but you should still see what they’ve tweeted there and check out their own Twitter accounts. More funny stuff from them is on the horizon for sure.
Tiny Hands: Check out this pretty funny Tumblr from retoucher Zach Vitale, graphic designer and illustrator James Weinberg, and photographer Bob O’Connor. The Tumblr is called One Tiny Hand, and as the name suggests, it features pictures of celebs that have been edited so that one of their hands is tiny. Come on, tiny hands are just funny. Also, it looks like Grey Mexico may have ripped off the One Tiny Hand Tumblr in a recent spot for Pringles. (via Adfreak)

GIF IRL: Artist and designer INSA has taken GIFs to the street with a new kind of street art called “GIF-ITTI.” The street art GIFs are made by painting the same surface over and over again, photographing each different layer, and then putting the images back together to create the moving Web image that everyone seems to love these days: the GIF. It’s a pretty neat idea that mixes digital culture with art with street culture. (via psfk)
