More Hilarious Inventions from Steven M. Johnson

Last time we covered the brilliant cartoonist/inventor Steven M. Johnson, he’d just released a book of his transportation designs. Now he’s got a new book out and it spans every design field under the sun.

Johnson has graciously allowed us to show you some of the images from “Patent Depending: Armbrella, Sofa Shower, Unzipped Fly Alarm and Other Essential Products.” Here are just a fraction of the literally hundreds of concepts he’s got in the book. (Note that we added the headings; he’s got a different chapter titling convention in the book.)

Architecture

Fashion Design

Flatware Design

Footwear Design

Furniture Design

Interface Design

Landscape Design

Multi-Tool Design

Office Furniture Design

Product Design

Sporting Goods Design

Transportation Design

Then there’s the random stuff that just cracks us up:

You can order the book here. What we’ve shown you here is just a fraction of the hundreds of concepts it contains. Having seen an advance copy, I can say that you won’t be disappointed!

Photographer Steven Burton Photoshops Out Ex-Gang Members Tattoos

1

For his latest project “Skin Deep”, photographer Steven Burton captured powerful portraits of heavily tattooed ex-gang members and digitally removed their tattooes using Photoshop.

“The concept came to me when I watched the homeboys going through the tattoo removal process,” Steven says.

He spent two years and over 400 hours in Photoshop removing tattoos that covered former LA gang members.

“When I started Skin Deep I had a simple concept: take portraits of heavily tattooed ex-gang members and remove the tattoos using digital re-touching to create before and after portraits,” Steven says on his Kickstarter page. “Most of the homeboys/girls hadn’t seen themselves without tattoos for decades, so during the interviews, I presented the images. There was a deep emotional response by the subjects.“
