I’m doing a mini presentation on monday about the things i wish i had thought of - and i remembered this brilliatn idea by a couple of illustrators that i for some reason i never blogged!
The idea is really straightforward - ” I want an iPhone - I’ll draw an iPhone - I’ll sell the drawing for the prince of an iPhone “
it’s so good, that i thought it would never work. - but a year or so on the kids have sold an absurd amount of ‘wants’!
check it out wantsforsale
Brett Ryder’s illustrations are so so good. (im beginning to tire of people cutting up old victorian almanacs - black and white dullness. However, this 60’s medical annuals seem to contain a fauna of awesomeness)
idiot boy while drunk decides to give his ‘ticket stub’ to chromeo to sign - only to realise its actually his twenty pound note… :(
how much are ‘celeb’ signatures worth? could i ebay this? willl it even reach the £20 level in bids? mmm….
giving me the whole eco trip when it probably takes 100 times more oil to make that shitty plasticated fridge magnet!… stop trying to transparently jump onto the ‘green bandwagon!’
- to be honest i dont really care about you non poluters or how much space your chickens have to roam around
- tell me more about what you’re doing for the welfare of you workers that greet me everyday with the broken smile of an Oliver Twist supporting cast member..
Bruce Wilhelm does the most awesome multi layered oil painting I have seen.
Saying that - I’ve never seen this done before.. but i love it!
NEWWORK magazine is a large-format newspaper publication for readers who appreciate the value of new ideas. Designed and published biannually by studio NEWWORK, issue no.1 shows a selection of contributors solely from New York.
but from the type geek in me - it kinda shines a light on all the things i should be doing but am not. (cause there is only so much type madness you can get away with when working on Nokia campaigns!) :(
I (heart) this magazine!
Wow - I looked around the office yesterday and I thought “where did all these people come from?”
Work Club has grown from 5 people in a broom closet to 32 people in a loft!
I just wish they weren’t all so HOTTT - it makes the design team look slightly fugly..
for a realtionship therapist - i’d love to know who did it :)
I was watching the The Green Room’ the other day so being the nerd i am - i followed through with the ol’ ‘intermaweb research’ - which led me to find the best interviewing ‘character’ ever (as cynical as i am i actually think its a real person NOT a character!)
as a fan of Andy Kauffmann and all things awkward - i was chuffed when i found this website today! - it looks like early days - but the interviews seem to be painfully funny.
My stupid message on indiv M&Ms!! my logo, my message - or i can even just select my favourite ones (yellow) and have a bag full of JUST yellow M&Ms!
look out for FAIL M&Ms to hand out to the design team! (cause we fully fail all the time!) :DmyM&Ms!
Tight dealines, all nighters, beers, pasta and sofa sleeping..
and the reward we get is Charlie circulating photos of our ‘not-so-glorious-selves’ fully out of it on the couch. :)
