Unbelievable, and Creepy

Gene Kelly dances, once again, in Volkswagen UK's latest commercial (Quicktime).

It's an amazing ad. The mix is hot, and the result... well, I'll let you check it out.

Mornings

"So Chris, what did you do this morning?"

"I shot NINETY-SIX PHOTOS of a brand new sneaker in TWENTY-ONE MINUTES."

Yeah, it was one hell of a morning.

Why the Interweb Is Cool

We've all been there: sooner or later, the site of graffiti from around the world you curate gets visited by one of the artists whose work is on the site. And then he leaves a comment that roughly translates to:

"TOSE ALREADY EXISTS. IF YOU'RE ITALIAN AND DON'T GET IT, CHECK A DICTIONARY. YOU CAN'T PAINT BETTER THAN TOSE. SALUTATIONS FROM THE REAL TOSE."

I've always hoped that Scrawl would connect with its audience. Once the redesign and upgrade is done, I'm going to seriously start hawking this thing.

Another Crappy Post without Daleks, Monkeys, Design or Photo

Yup. You got it. I'm still sick, but now on super-drugs (can you say pills that cost $3.50 each?). I'm headed to Ottawa this weekend to chill, but I'll be back soon enough and there will be real updates. Seriously. I'm busting out the slide scanner and doing it up next weekend.

Oh, did I mention I bought an XBox, a TV and HALO 2? And that getting the TV was a shenanigan? And that when it finally did arrive, it was defective? YEAH. So much for getting the gaming out of my system before my next houseguest arrives.

Science is cool!

Still sick. Head stuffed up horribly. Going home to sleep and possibly survive this.

Check this out though: Spray-on Solar Power Cells

Down and Out

I'm sick. More so than I was this weekend. Great. I'll be back soon enough though, kids.

Novel 2

After an e-mail exchange this morning with my co-worker, she made a slight suggestion as to a revision to the title of my biography:
Clients Are Shit, and Design Isn't Art*
*ok, I exaggerated. Design is art somtimes.
I hate people.

Check out these nifty little guys from the toy company Kubrick. They hold your iPod and keep it safe from other roh-buts.

Novel

When I'm called upon to write my thoughts about the design industry and my experiences as a world-famous designer, I'll call my book:
Clients Are Shit, and Design Isn't Art*
*ok, I exaggerated. Design is art somtimes.

Argh. So much badness.

This first week back has not been smooth at all. I'm sick, and I've got projects that make me want to bash my head against the brushed aluminum edges of my G5. And I had planned on drawing a monkey doing just that, or perhaps something else equally amusing, but someone told me they were sick of the damn monkeys.

Christmas, etc.

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I went back home for Christmas, and have been feeling a little under the weather since. All that aside, here's the promised gem from my iChat conversation with Matt. Click on the image below to see his design solution for a red wine campaign...
