melting bunnies

Like the cold of winter is oppressive, so to is the presence of Christmas. What other holidays even are there? I can't think of a one, obscured as they are by a festive fog, thick as the thickest egg nog in the world.

Here then, a literal representation of the crushing might of Christmas, visited upon a symbol of another famous holiday. Enjoy.

stone printer

This guy has built a printer that basically prints stone and he wants to use it in space, or some shit. I didn't fully read this article, I'm quite tired. I know I'm slipping. Let's just all take a cool tool.

Draw your own conclusions (little illustration joke for you there)

paper cut outs

Link for you.

Jill Sylvia is the arist. She cuts out the blank spaces on business documents. Have a look. It's delicate and lovely and weird.

USB sticks in new york

Someone has gone around new york and hidden usb sticks in walls, so people can swap data.

This excites me.

lego adverts

I don't know if these are actually adverts for lego. But lego is one of those things that when I pick up makes me feel inadequate. It's like, I did an arts degree, I should fucking own this lego. Instead I almost always just make a house or some crap, by which I mean I just about stick four blocks together and leave it at that.

So, lego pictures:

Someone has basically taken a Taj Mahal lego set and built some kind of freaky space ship looking thing from it. Like I say, this may be for an ad campaign. More info, and extra pictures, here.

I'm sick! I'm so sick! There is physical pain here and people must go through this every day but goddamnit anyway.

This has sort of lifted my spirits. Someone could say it is lame but who cares, right?

true story

Dave’s glasses are ripped right off his head, by the wind no fucking less, just as it pulls the air out of your mouth so when you’ve been chasing sheep for two minutes you just can’t catch your breath. You’ve been chasing sheep because five seconds ago you leapt into this bowl in the earth, where your friends were sat, Dave included, and machined gunned them with a Thompson gun made from air, then you saw the sheep and they thought you were just a thing, an alive thing, that wasn’t called Roland, and they had no idea you knew about pens, and the cinema, and you have no idea about them, except that they’re alive things and so you ran at them, being a shape, and they ran away.
Then, unable to catch your breath at the top of this cliff, you feel what it’s probably like to fly, because these winds are something else.

godzilla illustration

BOB sent me this and it is blindingly good stuff. A bunch of retro illustrations for Ultraman monsters. Ultraman was a sort of Japanese superhero TV show.

insane animation

All I know is this is created by a man named Paul Robertson. I wouldn't watch this if you have a weak stomach. I think he loves 8bit looking animation (it might not even be 8bit, I'm not even sure exactly what that means). I can't really explain this video, it is amazing.

been away

but I'm back and here is a small article on rebranding the U.S. Postal Service. I always find myself thinking about stuff like this and realising I'd have no idea how to rebrand something that would be easy to rebrand. I have so little idea, in fact, that I can't even think of a product, or business, it would be easy to rebrand. But the idea here is simple, and straightforward, and it makes it look like it was the easiest thing in the world to do, and maybe that's the indication of a good idea, and good design.
