An Awesome Book

Dallas Clayton just sent over my very own copy of An Awesome Book, his children’s book about the importance of dreams. He toured around reading his book to as many kids as he possible and for every book he sold, he gave one away. I have to admit I got a little bit emotional as I read it, books like this are necessary!

    Dallas Clayton is a good man for making a book like this for kids, Kids have very little inspiration these days, other authors of children’s book should follow in his footsteps and create books with imagination like this…I’ll be purchasing this book for my niece and nephew. Has Dallas Clayton created any more books?

Pedalling an average of 70 kilometres in a single day for each design, Lund completed 70 doodles last year! Check out a selection of his work below!

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity


This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
