Clever KFC Ads Perfectly Replaced Fire With Spicy Fried Chicken

The best print ads often make you look twice. A perfect example? This campaign for KFC Hot and Spicy out of Hong Kong.

In a clever and well executed set of ads, Ogilvy Hong Kong replaces fire in photography—shots of the Space Shuttle, a rocket-powered race car and a group of Power Ranger stand-ins—with blown-up (in more ways than one) images of spicy fried chicken.

There’s not much to the concept, spotlighted by Campaign Brief Asia, but in this case that’s a good thing. Once you get the concept, you get the concept and can just sit back and appreciate the craft.

A Collection Of Hand-Painted Movie Posters From Africa

This art form in African countries was at its peak during the 1980s and 1990s. During this time, artists would let their imagination run wild in order to create posters that would never fail to draw audiences to Africa’s dilapidated cinema halls, so they used their fantasy to add scenes, weapons, and characters that didn’t even exist in the original movie.

Reimagine Classic Movies Through The Acid-Trip Style Of Artist Dan Mumford

Working as a freelance illustrator, designer and screen printer, London based artist Dan Mumford creates highly detailed and imaginative images. His intricate work starts with hard, bold lines often drafted in pencil, pen or on a tablet. Then the colours and tones are refined and perfected. Dan has worked for artists such as ‘Iron Maiden’, ‘Pearl Jam’, ‘Devil Wears Prada’, ‘Bleeding Through’ and ‘Gallows’ and continues to climb to the very top of his game.

“I don’t really know how to categorise it,” said Dan Mumford. “It developed from my love of comics and graphic novels and trying to replicate that when I was younger,” he explained. “Alongside that, I experimented with screen printing techniques around 12 years ago and the way I colour and shade came from that. So it’s a sort of mash-up of classic inking with screen printing techniques, but all done digitally. I think how I shade and do my colouring is quite different to how most people in this field work, but it does give what I do a certain look.”

Javier Mayoral’s Oddly Seductive Cartoons

It’s difficult to do more than open a website today before you’re faced with a semi-hilarious internet meme, but Javier Mayoral’s small surrealist paintings are easily the best of them all. The artist, who has received no formal training, paints in his spare time when he’s not working as a chef – a fact that makes the sheer quantity of work that he has produced astounding. Over the last three years he has made around 4,600 of these pieces, usually painting at least five a day, which he then sells on eBay.

The absurd images range from scantilly clad women bending over next to captions about Hollandaise sauce recipes to men playing Batman with cats on their heads, and often feature the German singer Heino or Conservative politician Helmut Kohl, though nobody really knows why. Still, when a portfolio is as full of work as this one is the ins and outs cease to be important; so long as Javier continues to paint his absurd, hilarious masterpieces, we will continue to enjoy them.
