Joshua Ben Longo leads "Longoland", a reaction to the restrictive world of traditional product design. Simply the most original stuff I've seen in a long time.

Pictures of Walls

A gallery of walls with stuff written on = great site.

Do schools kill creativity?

I can't get enough of these TED talks. Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it.

I absolutely love the typography work of London based Von. Be sure to check out his shop for new poster prints too!

J. J. Abrams on Independent Filmmaking

Good things should never end.

Just start scrolling down Orange... it never ends! I love the quaint flash animations and character designs, very very cool.

(ideas worth spreading)

TED talks are incredibly inspiring and cover a wide range of mediums and professions. I could watch these all day...

...hard work and the right tools

Great piece about how 3 British graphic designers created an Omaha beach invasion scene in only 4 days. (excuse the horrible music) via Motiongrapher

music video progress... (#7)

Yesterday we found the perfect location to shoot the bedroom scene...

We also discussed the intro animation and decided to go with the 1st board option. Before I start work on the animation though, we need to film a 30 second clip on a forest road to overlay the illustration on top of, so I'm planning on filming that scene along with most of the doomsday scenes at Providence Canyon State Park or Rocktown this weekend.

Gloomy Bear

...and check out the artist's official site too!

怪獣 (strange beast)

This flickr set from modern_fred blows my mind. Further research led me to the Giant Monster Index and I nearly had a heart attack.

Happy New Years!


Furni's behind the scenes look at their amazing product line has really inspired me to get my hands dirty. Props to my friend Dave for sending me the link!

Braveheart meets Care Bears

Great little short film, animation by PandaPanther and music by The Black Angels.

Great interview over at PingMag with Alex Kubalsky, a simply amazing Japanese toy designer.
