…more from the “Alternative Life Instructions” leaflet

Take a look at about:blank’s previous post from the “Alternative Life Instructions” leaflet

If anyone knows the source/author of these funny illustrations, add it to the comments so i can credit them.

UPDATE: Thanks to all the comments and the additional traffic from Mark Frauenfelder at Boing Boing, I think we may be getting somewhere.

“James” & Maggie Leber pointed us to Airtoons

“AJ” thinks it the work of Shawn Wolfe
“Heather” has pointed us to the nearest match at Something Awful, which had a photoshop competition with similar illustrations although i’m not positive they are as professionally finished as the Doppleganger or Bully Manual but there are some funny attempts:

Share and Enjoy !

See the somethingawfuls for IndieRockLance’s “Way to go she’s Dead and it’s your fault” for the doppelganger on the receiving end of the hot doppelganger-on-doppelganger action and Jumpin_Frog’s “Investigation Shows Olsens’ Mother Forced Bulimia” for the giving it end.
