Role reversal

Artwork by Spanish cartoonist Asier Sanz @asiersanznieto  

For humans, screen time is the default. For robots, they plunge inside analog.

The cyborg is somewhere in that gray space in the middle.

The Beatles never look up

A cartoonish modern-day interpretation of the iconic The Beatles Abbey Road album cover. The only thing missing, besides Paul McCartney's shoes, is the Abbey Road zebra-crossing. Chances are the driver also works for Uber. #funny #thebeatles #art

What if the four distracted Beatles never looked up during the Abbey Road album shoot? This cartoon presents a funny, modern-day interpretation of the iconic The Beatles Abbey Road album cover. The only thing missing, besides Paul McCartney’s shoes, is the Abbey Road zebra-crossing. Chances are the driver also works for Uber.

The ‘perfect’ writing room

When it comes to writing, there's no such thing as the perfect setup. There is only good enough. The resistance eats away the perfectionist into inanition.  #writing #cartoon #funny

Start already.

Walking is hard

Walking didn’t use to be this hard because we didn’t think much about it. But now we’re all walking zombies, staring down into our mobile screens. We use our ears and narrow field of view to warn us of impending danger.

Thankfully, designers are creating smart powered pedestrian pavement to save our lives from distraction and tunnel vision.

Walking used to be a sensory experience, a way of thinking with our steps. Now, we just walk for the steps, leaning on Fitbit to validate our activity levels. We replay snaps and photos when we get home to remind us the things we “noticed” on our journey.

“Methinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.” – Henry David Thoreau

We used to walk with books and dream into the blue skies. But now those things are primarily viewed through our digital screens. We’ve sacrificed daydreams for an enhanced reality.
