Toys in conversation

Just dropping a short post here, have been quite busy lately, but I promise I’ll start posting more after this one. So for now, check out this artist’s wonderful work.

Aled Lewis, a London based illustrator and designer, made some great cartoons featuring classic toys and speech balloons/text bubbles. Sounds simple, but sure does look great. Enjoy!

An Elephant on the tube

I reckon everybody has seen a animal-shaped cloud in his life, or if not in real life, at least the bunny-shaped cloud in  Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain. I get it a lot, seeing something that’s not there,  looking at optical illusions and seeing both the young girl and the old lady or the duck and the rabbit. Paul Middlewick had it too, but what he saw, was quite a bit more special, in 1988 he spotted the first animals on the London Underground maps, over the years a lot of people have contributed other animals to the collection. Now they’ve all been placed online, where both me and you can enjoy them.. so check out the gallery below or visit their site for more info.

Black Mamba

A post about snakes, but have no fear, no bad acting done by Samuel L. Jackson in this blogpost.

One of my favourite directors has to be Robert Rodriguez, a true genius and maker of Sin City, Grindhouse: Planet Terror and of course Machete (the movie & the trailer). Apart from that, when it gets to advertising about sports, Adidas is pretty awesome, but all hands down for Nike, bringing creativity, awesome imagery and  humor in every ad.  Their latest ad is a prime example of that, directed by Rodriguez and featuring Basketball legend Kobe Bryant, action hero/actor Bruce Willis amongst others.

I’ll say no more about the plot, except for this, one person I really can’t stand, dies in this short film. Check it out and enjoy!

Read my lips

Valentine’s Day has passed once again, both lovers and those single or broken-hearted have went trough a day full of emotion. I reckon that thousands of lips have touched, but I’ll bet you that none of those were as beautifully decorated as those done by Viridis Somnio, an American photographer and lovely artist on DeviantArt. The serie has been given the catchy name “Animal-ipstick” and what you see is what you get, awesome and especially funny lips decorated with colourful lipstick. So check out the gallery below and enjoy.

Soothing energy

Due to a great lack of time – caused by my exams – I haven’t been posting the many awesome finds I came across during the last couple of weeks. Luckily I’m almost at the finish line, which means I’m able to again provide you with the ultimate entertainment for moments like these.

Pro Rider Danny MacAskill – also known as Taggart – has an amazing story leading up to this indescribably amazing video. Back in 2009 he recorded a 5-minute video together with his flatmate and uploaded it on Youtube, rendering him instant fame. The video was a direct hit which displayed an extraordinary  amount of talent, originality and quite frankly also balls. It was only rightly so that a short while after the video, he was given a sponsorship by RedBull. A few months ago MacAskill and his crew decided to take on a journey from Edinburgh back to his hometown Dunvegan, in the Isle of Skye. The intense energy of this sport combined with the soothing songs, that were also parent in his first video, make this a must see for just about everybody. I could go on for hours about this video, but I’ll let the images speak for themselves, so check it out and enjoy.
