The Ultimate Bigot’s Supersized Calendar.
Maps used to be boring and stereotypes used to be mean… until graphic designer and visual artist Yanko Tsvetkov, a.k.a. Alphadesigner, brought them together in one of the most clever, honest and inappropriate calendars to date.
Before you take this seriously and crucify him, you might want to let him explain his artistic philosophy. I can hear it resonate, for the most part, with my own:
As an artist, I am limited only by the span of my imagination and the level of my mastery. I’m not politically correct. Art is an expression of feelings and spirit, not a moral quest for dignity, purification or salvation. If you seek the latter, go to a priest or simply continue reading.
