There is a bit of hope running around the land. Having only lived through the 80s, 90s and 00s (70s don't count, I was too young) I can't remember a candidate or a general political stand that inspired so many artists to do something or make their voice heard. Not sure if it is our times or the people in them, but it does instill hope.

Hey, you already knew Lee Reedy is a staple in the Design/Advertising Community. What you may not know is he has a much more traditional art side. Don't believe us, thats your choice, but I'd still head on over to www.leereedyfineart.com and see what some of us do in our spare time. You may even discover some of us have spare time.

Great Blog here, Photoshop Disasters. It is a walkthrough of what not to do when trying to create that perfect lie. My favorite would have to be the overpopulation of celebrities with big heads. Just because you can doesn't mean you know how.

Good Type is a lost art. You rarely see any new work that is all type. Clients just want pictures. I had nearly lost hope, but now Craig Ward has restored my faith. Look out, new work ahead, inspiration and a bit of needing-to-fill-my-little-available-time with type. More inspiration, and type, on his site.
Hitachi has found a way to get terabytes on hard drives. They celebrate it by this craptastic video that explains you can put a lot on them. Thought this would be informative, you know, the character looked like a Bill from School House Rock, so I thought they would use the medium to explain how they did it. Nope. Let's just say there is a lot of creepy here.

Usually, College Humor is off my radar, but when you talk to me sweetly about fonts, I'll watch just about anything. Not the best humor, (really, just going by the names, how very disappointing) but it does start to explain how fonts got into every computer. However, it is still about the fonts so here you go:

Horrible Download times, yet worth it. Head on over to Got Milk and check out the beautiful site to play the games, learn a bit, and be entertained. Complete with a ripoff (but still very nice) Ready Mech paper dolls as prizes. The games and puzzles are a it too easy, but art is nice.

Most of you have probably seen this amazing work from Sukle all over town. They really know how to push good concepts and get people talking. I don't think I know anyone in advertising who doesn't wish they were working for them. Keep up the good work Sukle, we'll all keep envying you.

Everyone is talking about how to not talk to consumers but actually bring them into the brand. Adidas has continued to raise the bar. The last post we had for the All Black team was using their blood for the ink on a poster. this is even better, bring fan's names and support, and put them on the thread they use to make the jersey. Sure, they can't actually read the name, but it is there, using some pretty cool tech, now fans are truly a part of the team. Hit the site for more. VIA NotCot.com
Not entirely sure these aren't sanctioned by Google (way too much information about service), but even if they are, they are still great, low budget, concepts. Either way, visit The Vacationers for more of their work.

Once again, a view of General Order. He’s a maniac, I think you can tell just by looking at him. Although his intentions are good, he has a way of being a little bit… insane.
There are more, in this flickr group, but the image and description are just perfect. I'd love to see this guy real, solving unpatriotic crime.
