Inspired by Advertising

Picture 3

I’m interested in checking out the new film documentary titled, Art & Copy.  It’s a behind the scenes look at the advertising industry from the perspective of a handful of the greatest creative pioneers whose ideas resulted in some of the most iconic advertisements… and who actually moved and inspired our culture with their work.  Sure, it’s easy to hate advertising when you get pop-ups online or bombarded with television commercials that take up more time then the program you are actually watching… but the madness of a creative mind is intriguing and down right addictive… just ask anybody in the industry.

Under the Sea

If you are looking for a mini-getaway… for your mind… take the time to watch this video taken of Kuroshio Sea, the main tank at the Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan.  Touted as the second largest aquarium in the world, this tank holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters.

The video soundtrack is titled “Please don’t go” by Barcelona.

Mister Kama used a series of drawings on label stickers and an elevator handrail as his flipbook canvas in Milan.  Check it out…

For another interesting flipbook idea, check out Erbert and Gerbert’s Human Flipbook.

All The Single Ladies

Am I the only one who thinks the Justin TimberlakeBeyonce SNL skit for “All The Single Ladies” is lame?  Perhaps it is only lame because I’ve seen this little gem… nothing competes!

Doesn’t Banksy‘s latest NYC piece remind you of the YouTube darling, Charlie Bit My Finger?
