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:
The search goes on!
Looks like Airtoons to me…or maybe just someone inspired by them.
Looks like it might be Shaw n Wolfe to me.
His website: Shawn Wolfe.
Another piece of his that reminds me of the excerpts you’ve run: here.
i believe the initial idea was from ‘airtoons’ (www.airtoons.com) but this seems to be from one of the ones who borrowed the idea.
i think these images were created for a thread on Something Awful.
Those are great!
I noticed that the creator is probably American, as they have misspelt ‘Doppelganger’.
Another clue that the author is American is that the cartoons are actually funny.
Haha, with such an excellent dry sense of humour, you must be british!
The doppelganger cartoon is a fusion of images used on the somethingawful thread. 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.
It should read Doppelgänger or Doppelgaenger, unless your name is Dussel. Get a Duden and a life.
On the topic of doppelganger sex, a bit of googling (to try and find the origins of the toon), brought up this:
(A pr0n site specialising in photomanipulated and cartoon “clone sex”)
Reminiscent of Amber Hawke Swanson’s Amber Doll work:
might be inspired by that?
I also assumed shawn wolfe because of this: http://shawnwolfe.com/albums/album31/RemoverInstaller_Twice.jpg
But I don’t really know…
That is a good laugh. It made a good start of my day. Thanks
Cool image and copy. I just posted on my (NSFW) blog about an artist who made a life size replica of herself. I too am curious as to who the guy who did these are.
Of course doppelganger sex is a fantasy for most healthy adults isn’t it? I mean ISN’T IT?
that looks weird…
It seems to me that this is some leaflet about life saving techniques… it hast just been modyfied to look funny. But still one question .. who did this ?
