My Little Pony, Typography Humor

August 22, 2012 | by

  • “What did the horse say to Bordeaux?” Typographic humor.
  • Bravery, boldness, folly: six insane acts of writing. (Some more literally so than others.)
  • “I took little snippets of text and ideas from some of my favorite authors, and let the words be a springboard for an illustration. The illustrations incorporate and interact with the text and hopefully add up to something that engages the mind as much as the eye.”
  • “Twilight’s libraries are profoundly disorganized.” A human librarian gives a professional critique to Ponyville’s My Little Pony librarian, Twilight Sparkle.
  • Nothing you didn’t already know: books can indeed treat depression and anxiety.

      Wow, a link to a Cracked.com article on the Paris Review Daily blog. Their analysis of Finnegan’s Wake reads like something written by a foul-mouthed High School student who was forced to read it for English class. Priceless!

      “let the words be a springboard for an illustration” puts me in mind of http://zenpencils.com/

      A lot of pop culture quotes there, but some classics too.
