    I love how illustrations in web design somehow brings back that human element to the internet.

    Goes to show that sometimes it is the imperfections that make a design perfect.

    The Munch 5-a-Day iPhone app also generates webpages for users to display their progress to friends and family – there’s some nice illustration (taken from the app) incorporated into the page – roll your mouse over the sheep at the bottom – nice touch!

    I love them all; but Dropr, The last march, and Monster CSS are the best for me. Earlier I’ve read something similar about illustrations, it says that most of the time you should experiment and make use of “errors” to form new ideas. :)
