11 New WTF? Illustrations

They made us laugh with their first set of WTF? illustrations and now creative design company Estudio Minga is back with their second set! What began as an in-house joke quickly became a way for Estudio Minga to show the world just how creative they could be. Astoundingly, for this month, they were the #1 most appreciated set on Behance with over 5,000 ups! Just why were these minimalist illustrations so loved? I think it’s because they touch us to the core. They remind us that life is filled with funny, fleeting moments and that sometimes you just have to sit back at them and laugh. Lucas, from Estudio Minga, sent us this hilarious follow-up. I asked him to tell us why he created it and here’s what he shared. “Part II is just the second part of the crazy ideas that keeps flowing through our minds. Thanks to the impact Part I had on the web, started by your post, we’re expanding the series, hoping to keep people laughing. We received tons of emails and requests insisting that we make more funny posters around the same topic. While we work every day here in Minga, we have our funny moments and write everything that comes to our minds: ideas, designs, phrases. The first series helped us to spread our creativity worldwide, and showed us how creativity can be sparked just by a little idea. We are working on an online shop to sell our prints to everyone that contacted us asking to have one WTF? poster on their walls. Maybe My Modern Met wants to sell them? LOL … Maybe. (Yes, that’s in the works.) Thank you, Alice, for helping us spread our work around. Thanks, My Modern Met! Regards from Minga Team”

This year, Iranian installation artist Shirazeh Houshiary has quite literally turned the tradition on its head with her upside-down evergreen. Suspended by its trunk, the tree hovers above the main entrance’s stunning spiral staircase.

Photographer Searches for Mystery Wedding Couple After Discovering Film in 50-Year-Old Camera

You never know what you’ll find when you buy something that’s vintage. When photographer Alex Galmeanu bought a rare 50-year-old camera off eBay, he never expected to find an exposed (but undeveloped) roll of film inside. “Of course I had it developed right away,” he wrote, “and, as a surprise again, I was able to recover 10 quite usable images, especially when considering their age.
