Quirky Illustrations with Funny Messages


Minneapolis-based graphic designer Phil Jones, aka murraymullet, creates playful illustrations of objects and pets that will leave you smiling. The quirky drawings give a voice to inanimate objects like a trash can, transforming the waste receptacle into a refined connoisseur exclaiming, “Everything you bring me is garbage.”

Even when Jones' characters aren't accompanied with a speech or thought bubble, there's a universal understanding of his funny message. A shocked and teary orange kissing an equally disturbed tube of toothpaste speaks volumes as we all know the wretched taste of their combination after brushing one's teeth.
