“I never dreamed I would receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, mostly because my style is so typically Austrian. I never thought I would even qualify for the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. I mean, Maybe the Nathanial Hawthorne prize for judgmental nature. Or the Judy Blume award for awkward puberty. Or the Harper Lee prize for small bodies of work - but never this. And yet I hope that like Mark Twain, a hundred years from now, people will see my work and think, “Wow, that is actually pretty racist”.”—
Brock Davis is a talented creative director at the Minniapolis based agency Carmichael Lynch. I don’t think I’ve been quite as inspired by anyone as I was with this guys body of work in some time. It’s hard to choose just one photo or illustration, because the frequency of cleverness across his broad body of work occurs so often that its undeniable that the dude’s got a very creative noodle. A perfect example is the work he created for “Make Something Cool Every Day” project. On top of that he communicates equally clearly with all forms of media he gets his hands on. Its incredibly apparent that he enjoys the sheer day to day action and challenge of being creative, and is a true example that if you do something passionatly and well, good things come of it. Check out more of our favs by Brock Davis below.

Fuck male barbers who think that positioning themselves at the $40 price point means they can be both terrible at their job and exude an elitist attitude that suggests your very presence in their chair has inhibited the enjoyment of their day. I’m going DIY.
Thank you. Thank you and welcome to my 2nd Annual first show.
Yes, I know what you guys are thinking, “Hey, it’s the guy from Twitter.”
Welcome to my new show, “Conan.” People ask me why I named the show “Conan.” I did it so I’d be harder to replace.
This is an exciting night. I’m glad to be on cable. The truth is, I’ve dreamed of being a talk show host on basic cable ever since I was 46.
And things are going well already. I’m happy to report that we’re already #1 in TBS’s key demographic —- people who can’t afford HBO.
I’m going to be honest: It’s not easy doing a late-night show on a channel without a lot of money and that viewers have trouble finding. So that’s why I left NBC.
But the weird thing is this: I put myself and my staff through a lot because I refused to go on at midnight. So I get this job at eleven. Then, yesterday, Daylight Savings Time ended —- so right now it’s basically midnight. In fact, it’s 12:05.
A lot’s happened in the news since I went off the air —- and I was hoping I could cover it all in one joke. But then I realized that’s like trying to keep an Icelandic volcano from wearing Lady Gaga’s meat dress while a trapped Chilean miner cleans up the BP oil spill…Brett Favre’s penis.
