The Simpsons Star Wars Intro

UPDATE: This article has been moved to

While we all wait for the Star Wars version of Family Guy to come out, along comes this surprisingly authentic-looking Star Wars introduction to the Simpsons. It’s actually a homemade parody by illustrator ‘dude’ Rich Cando. First he’s going to get a big cease and desist from Lukas Arts and Fox. Then he’s going to get a big juicy job offer. On the internet that’s known as a win-win scenario.

Here are some screengrabs for when the video gets pulled:

Lego My Young Woz and Jobs Playset!

Two of my favourite brands (Apple and Lego) mashed together (unofficially) and served up awesome (with PodBrix). Don’t miss the Young Woz and Jobs Playset ($39.99) which will be on sale for about 3 seconds before selling out all 300 units on August 29, 2007. This is quite possibly the geekiest apple-freak gift yet.

Bite Me


I’m always on the looking for talented people who make ad guys appear to know what they’re doing (I need all the help I can get). Bite Animation are one of those crews. They’re a small motion graphics & design studio in Johannesburg who’ve done some impressive work for some very picky creatives. They’ve just relaunched their website so go visit them.  If you’re a fan of heavily layered illustration you’ll enjoy the experience.
