These recently discovered watercolor illustrations are great. What famous artist did them? Check the Daily Mail to find out.
Joe Peacock put up a good blog post about the difference between things that feel like work and things that are work, and I think it’s worth putting up here. Obviously I can’t put the whole thing up here, that would probably be plagiarism or something, but I’ll put up a snippet and you click here to read the rest.
“- Sketching 12 new faces for your new graphic novel character, Captain WolverSpiderBat, feels like work.
- Pencling panel 1 of page 1 is work.
- Making notes in that notebook you keep called “great novel ideas” about a particularly clever plot twist where the guy on the subway realizes he IS the voice in his own head feels like work.
- Writing the first word of the opening paragraph of page 1 is work.”
It’s not a long entry, so I suggest you read it.
Love this clock. It’s got cities representing each time zone, so when you want to know the time in a certain zone, put that city on the top. Such a simple and brilliant idea. Available from the MoMA Store.
Do you think if this 186 foot tall waterfall was 1 foot taller that it would have murdered this guy going over it? Get it, cause then it would be 187, which if you are into gangsta rap or the movie Demolition Man, you know is the police code for murder. But either way, I love the quote this guy gave as the reason he did it, “I hope it encourages people not to run huge waterfalls but to understand that the only limits that exist are the ones you create, no matter what you are doing.” I really like to imagine him saying this in a Keanu Reeves Point Break voice.
Seriously this pooch needs a hair cut soon. He’s looking like a yeti.
Is graffiti is called “street art” these days? Because I think most of this is graffiti. Maybe I’m getting art and “tagging” confused. Either way, some of this stuff is pretty cool. Check out more of it here.
I have no idea what made me think of this a few minutes ago, but this was one of the first flash cartoons I ever saw almost 10 years ago. I’m so glad it’s since been put on YouTube. Left. Claw. North. Rightclawsouth!

When it comes to advertising, telling people you are “cool” usually doesn’t work. You’ve got to show them you are “cool.” So I guess the same could be said to communicate other messages. For instance, you could say that when people wear your clothing that they are “dressed to kill.” Or you can dress mannequins in your clothing and make them look like they are being killed. Right?

I’d consider myself a regular on the website Fark. Plenty of interesting and entertaining stories get posted on there, so it’s a good resource. But lately, this ad for Jerry Seinfeld coming to the Landmark Theater has been scaring the crap out of me. Look at him, is he passing a kidney stone or something?
I was Googling something a minute ago and when I typed in “wh” before I could get to the next letter, the search suggestion thing popped up “what is twitter” and that got me thinking. I wonder what Google would bring up for each letter of the alphabet. So as of July 17th, 2009, this is the alphabet, according to Google search suggestions.
Some seemed pretty obvious, others not so much, like realtor.com? I also wonder how much these changed based on your location, previous searches, all that stuff. I wasn’t signed in to Google, so it shouldn’t really have had any data about me, but who knows, maybe they are watching when I’m not looking.
They say all publicity is good publicity, but I intend this publicity to not be good. It’s in regards to this GI JOE Accelerator Suit Skate Stunt. Seriously, it just looks bad. It looks entirely computer generated(well once the suit kicks in) and hokey. But I guess by putting it up here and telling you to watch how bad it is, I’m making them have more hits. So, I don’t know what to tell you, I’m conflicted. I hope this thing doesn’t really go viral, but in my efforts to express my opinion on it, I’m viral-izing it. Catch-22 I suppose.
According to paidcontent.org, Microsoft intends on opening stores “right next door to Apple stores.” Seems desperate to me, but I’m not a software giant, so maybe things look different from that end.
Check the Portfolio section, I just got done updating a bunch of it. Maybe tomorrow I’ll actually get the rest of the updates up, too. There’s lots of new stuff.
