When a group of co-workers received a new pool table at work, they set about decorating all of the balls with hand-painted emoji faces just for the hell of it.

The resulting game, dubbed “Poolmoji” seems to make the game more fun. Clearly, the balls have strong emotions about their role in the game.

Maybe you don’t even need numbers and stripes to play a proper game—just make it happy emotions vs. sad emotions. The cue ball can have a neutral expression while the 8-ball is represented by the dead face emoji.

At any rate, if you want to play Poolmoji, you’ll need to find someone with decent painting skills. But I wouldn’t be surprised if these became a real product down the line.

See Poolmoji in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

While artist Javier Burgo may be the lead designer for Angry Birds over at Rovio, his art is not confined to birds and pigs. Thankfully, he’s been sharing some of this art online, and it’s filled with versions of your favorite characters rendered in his unmistakable style.

I’m particularly fond of his Earthworm Jim and Suicide Squad Joker.

Take a few and check out more of his work below. [click to continue…]

Star Wars has inspired all kinds of art in the 39 years since the release of the original movie. But this infographic by graphic artist and illustrator Martin Panchaud may be the most epic art I’ve seen yet.

Panchaud has created a 403-foot scrollable infographic that tells the entire story of the Special Edition of Star Wars: A New Hope.

Even Mark Hamill was impressed: [click to continue…]

Over the last few weeks, a pretty nerdy Post-It note war has been escalating on Canal Street in New York City, with ad agencies like Havas Worldwide, Horizon Media, Cake Group, Biolumina, Harrison and Star getting in on the action.

Well, Havas just went nuclear—and the shockwave could be felt for miles.

Surrender is imminent, but you can follow the battle as it unfolded on Twitter at #canalnotes.
