…for those awful mornings. Something to brighten your day!
Less than one year ago artist Joe Fenton started a hand drawing project named “Solitude”. A really big and massive project that is 8ft wide by 5ft tall (2.4m x 1.5m) ,made in graphite and outlined in ink.
The illustration is a sight to behold, combining a dizzying number of images and religious references into one large-scale piece. Check out other drawings on the artist’s website.
…and an iPad was involved also. It was the strangest encounter ever. And what’s with the Chanel designer pulling the GOLD iPad to take a photo of Gaga? What the fuck is this??? Oh, and both speaking French! =))
Apparently, Mr. Lagerfeld is not quite up to date with the latest technology, although he has it ( this is from 2010):”Look, the Walkman now is like a historical piece for museums. And when the Walkman was new, everybody wanted a Walkman. Nobody I think certainly will know what a Walkman is anymore, huh? So an iPod, all this stuff today… when things become too popular, they are always fading away for something else.” […] “Facebook is a flawless object. It’s for me like a Brancusi. As I told you, I got one as a gift in gold — in white gold. And the BlackBerry too, and the iPod. I have all those from a gift, I wouldn’t buy it. But somebody gave me all those things in white gold. They are beautiful objects on the table — they are stunning. I don’t use them because I don’t have to use them.” So, it is to be assumed that this object he calls Facebook and has it in “white gold” is in fact an iPad. Ntz ntz ntz, Mr. Lagerfeld!
Oh yeah, and here’s the third degree encounter.
Creative Logo Designer Graham Smith describes his Brand Re-Versioning series as brand identities with a split personality.
The truth has been told! 🙂 I don’t personally agree with all of these logo twists but kudos on the idea.
ps. Crazy large bitch ass photos. ( probably not visible on 10″ screens =)) *wink* )
Although i am not into art whatsoever, about two years ago i saw a movie called “Factory girl” and one of the characters in the movie was Andy Warhol (played by Guy Pierce who did an amazing job portraying Andy),oh and Bob Dylan also (played by Hayden Christensen). It kicked ass because it wasn’t puritan at all -it had pervasive drug use, social sexual content, nudity and language.
Andy Warhol was such a peculiar person ( he was the leading man in the pop-art movement after all) , so that after watching the movie i spent hours googling him and came upon his quote on Coca-Cola:
“What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.”
FUNNY FACT I JUST REALIZED! If you replace every drink/drinks/ drinking Coke with do/does/ doing Coke (cocaine)… well…besides being humoristic, it can also be true :)) sniff sniff :))
Here’s Andy Warhol’s black and white Coke bottle painting (207.6 x 144.1 cm) which sold in 2010 for a staggering $35.36 million. 35!!!!!
