A lot of pub was made a year or so ago in the advertising world about the terrible redesign of the Tropicana orange juice containers and how sales have dropped 20% the two months following the redesign resulting in the loss of ten of millions of dollars. So how would the market react to this […]

I actually wouldn’t mind having a mouse like the OpenOfficeMouse. It’s built for the opensource software, OpenOffice, but I like the concept behind it. Sure, it’s incredibly ugly with its awkward color combo of teal buttons, white body, and black wire, but more buttons means the more I can swiftly accomplish. The one button clicking […]
View the full photo. I like how several of the Star Wars character have their weapons drawn (Storm Trooper, Snow Trooper, Boba Fett, and the black pilot dude). They seem to sense the force within that room. Perhaps the black and yellow tape on the floor is the only thing from stopping one of those […]

I like tabletop states. WA, MT, ND, CA, NV, UT, CO, WY, SD, NS, OK, NM, AZ, IA, MO, IL, AK, LA, MS, AL, TN, IN, GA, NC, PA represent. All you other states can learn a thing or two from the tabletops. Larger viewable image at my Flickr.

Such cultural associations often frustrate me as an artist. Image above manipulated from original photo by Lillybet Magdalena of Flickr via Creative Commons License.
When in London 4 years ago, my wife and I visited the V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum). It actually wasn’t one of the big highlights of our trip. In just about any other city it would be the #1 museum, but there’s so many things to see and do in London that the V&A didn’t […]
