Do you know DANBO!?


The name Danbo is a pun on the Japanese word for corrugated cardboard “danboru” (ダンボー). There’s also a company in Japan which makes cardboard boxes which has Danbooru in its name.

There have been a few variations on this name in the west, based on different translations from the original manga. Danbo was the original name used in the Yotsuba&! manga, and has also been used in the most recent translated versions for western markets.

The original western translations used the name Cardbo instead, as a literal play on words of the western word “cardboard”, but the “correct” name in the eyes of purists is Danbo, keeping the original Japanese pun intact.

Daily Inspirations no. 420

Another day, another set of exceptional daily design inspirations. Let’s take a look together what kind of artworks did my colleagues prepare for us today. I would suggest to check Mesa Arch by Bill Church, Sunrise by Ryan Edy and the Red Smoke photography. Who would thought rough nature could be that beautiful in case of the last photo. In the illustrations section, there are plenty of amazing fantasy artworks …. gonna mention at least one of them – Death Knight by Slide. Few sections below, there is the art / digital art section which I never miss as there is always something to look at. This time, my favorites are the Lion #2 by Jenny Liz Rome and Johnny Depp by Clarae. We’ll stop in the ad section as well. There is an amazing artwork called Livrarias Curitiba: Apocalypse by Livrarias Curitiba. Better check that one out. If you’re looking for a nice futuristic / techno font, you’ll find a download link to Xero’s Theorem Regular at the bottom. Enjoy!

BIG pictures deserve BIG captions

All the best pictures with all the weird captions from all the great stories. Have I said it enough?

Don’t Worry, I’ve Got This

This is a photo of a Pakistan Military Rescue Mission pilot carrying a man who appears to be a flood victim taken to a rescue helicopter. The soldier looked so cool in this picture with his red fluffy beard and his military suit. I almost thought of him as a character in an arcade or a Utopian guy in the 80’s.
