Public Speaking

The Tories create a pre-election ad campaign blatantly selling the load with a plastic air-brushed Cameron next to an empty slogan.

English public edits billboards to reflect popular sentiment.

The papers pickup the story of Cameron as Elvis.

Graphic designer Clifford Singer remixes posters. Even better, he creates an application that allows anyone to make their own version of the posters, spreading the visual word.

The beauty of recombinant culture.

Man's new best friend.

Nice concept for (which is a cool service that helps people start and find groups and get together) and smart move to put cats in the message mix (they rule the internet universe).

'Maybe you should get out more.'

Cat campaign developed at KNARF, New York.

The Wild World of Lego

These graphic Lego scenes have been getting around the web, but definitely worth a post...(you get the picture without a full reveal - tasteful use of plastic).

It's a small world.

There is something really playful and pleasingly strange about street projects, from telling stories with dog shit to spontaneous poster collaborations. My latest discovery is a tiny London street art project called Little People: little hand-painted people left in London to fend for themselves.

The Great Cake Masquerade

Pretty amazing cakes (I needed something to make Monday sweeter). A good friend of mine always said she was highly suspicious of food masquerading as other types of food (i.e., Quorn) and these examples really take the cake (couldn't help myself).

Check out the Sneaky Food Cakes Group on Flickr and Debbie Does Cakes for seconds.

Moving along to new and fluttering heights,
that glitter and flicker like a flame
dancing to disco dressed in a candy apple spandex dress.
It's a dream world
punctuated by perfectly round moons,
clementines that release perfunctory scents.
A whiff of purpose
a dark castle hidden behind thick,
sausage fingers grabbing at oozing food photography
staining paper pink with tomato sauce.
A pungent lullaby sung by hired corporate word smiths
sending out soothing messages to a stuffed and satiated public,
red tongues in khakis
release collective oral gas,
a symphony caught in cardboard burger cartons.

Print Trailers

Beautiful movie poster designs by Claudia Varosio (available on Etsy). Not only are they minimalist and unconventional, but she captured some of my favorite films and condescended them into arresting prints.

Roses & Rebels

Kind of sums up human nature...
