Beautiful Board Games

I am charmed by thoughtful ways to make something beautiful, even if you’ve seen it in a specific way your whole life!

Case in point, this 3D Monopoly designed by NY artist Charles Fazzino recently featured on Creative Bloq:

Now that’s some detail! (And bling!)

Creative Bloq mentioned a few other beautiful board games, too, designed by other folks with obviously different sensibilities. There’s Story:

But clearly my all-time favorite? Pulp Fiction Guess Who?:

Kinda perfect for this rainy Saturday, I’d say.

 

What’s In Your Junk Drawer?

First, this question of “what’s in your junk drawer” assumes I only have one. I think maybe all of my drawers are full of junk, but that’s not the point.

The point is that Matt Stevens has this clever little series, Junk Drawer, that depicts icons from pop culture… well, it tells us a lot about them by showing what’s in their junk drawer.

Like Batman:

Would Fancy be considered a dirty magazine in this context? Mee-ow!

Batman Drawer 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stevens is also brave enough to dive into the drawer of Pee Wee Herman:
