justin van laeken’s unique technique


jessica got a text from her friend tara last night that said, “FYI, this is how my husband stretches his willie’s.”


they were a little tight, so he wet the waistband and started stuffing shit in there:
igloo cooler, 3 pencils, 2 hammers, 4 books (chuck klosterman, cookbook, gardening book, and a book on socialism), 4 markers, 3 screwdrivers, and a mini bike pump.


justin, please let us know if it worked!

What would we really like to see if we could stand outside ourselves and look at us”

I defy you to not get lost in his thorough though minimalist posts which detail the best in international graphic design and illustration from the last few hundred years, from beautiful Art Nouveau book covers and quirky photo-visuals from old fairy tales, odd Bauhaus-style ephemera and surreal minimalist textbook pages, kinky pulp novel art to irksome political propaganda, 50 Watts is a great site to dig into when you want to get inspired – not to mention a killer place to build up your Pinterest pages.
