Internet University Cast



deviantART is one of my all-time favorite sites and has always been a part of my daily web surfing routine. For those who are not familiar with deviantART, it is an online community that showcases various forms of user-made artwork – photographs, sketches, illustrations, etc. One of the artists on deviantART who goes by the username elontirien, recently released an artwork based on her friend’s short story that features famous websites as its characters.

Here’s the artist’s comment regarding her artwork:

Ha…ha ha. So my friend wrote a sort of short story called “Internet University,” where all the students and faculty are personified famous websites. It’s hilarious XD. Facebook and Twitter are roomies, Professor Google has to deal with the foul-mouthed Youtube, etc.
I decided I had to draw them all out.

And DA isn’t part of the story (yet?), but I went and designed her anyway for the hell of it. lolololol *runs*

I really love the artwork. Its very creative and funny at the same time. The artist – elontirien really did a very good job depicting the characters from the short story.

How about you guys? What do you think about elontirien’s Internet University Cast drawing? If you can add another website to the cast, which website would it be?

    @joie – If you take a look at the artist’s portfolio/gallery on deviantART, you can see her other artwork and you’ll know that she’s really creative. Yeah, CNN would be a good website to add to that cast. They should also add Digg, Yahoo and StumbleUpon. :D

    @JR – Hi there! Glad you could drop by my blog. Yes, the person who made the short story is brilliant and so is the artist who made these illustrations. That’s true, someone should’ve thought about doing these earlier. :D

    @Jhay – Awesome indeed! Although I doubt that the companies would adapt these illustrations, especially YouTube. Hehe

    Now that’s awesome! I wonder if the companies that run those websites would adopt or pick up on the illustrations.
