Ivana Martinovic

Ivana Martinovic passed me a link to her design portfolio and I’m glad she did. I especially like these embroideries that were created for a series of wine labels. Beautiful work.

PES / Scrabble

Another great stop-motion by PES, this time it’s a commercial for Scrabble. This is the same guy that created that Spaghetti animation. Enjoy.

Hand to Hand / People of Many

I recently contributed a photo to a wonderful project called, Hand to Hand. A whole bunch of really talented people donated images to be turned into postcards and sold by donation at shops around town. 100% of the proceeds go towards People of Many, a non-profit, literacy outreach program.

Heather sent all the contributors this great little book as a thank you for participating. I was happily surprised to find my work sitting along side another friend of mine – James Nizam.

Hit “more” for the full list of contributing artists and locations to pickup the postcards.

Damien Jurado – Caskets

Seattle-based Matt Daniels (thinklab) directed a gorgeous new music video for Damien Jurado’s song, Caskets. I haven’t been too impressed with the bulk of music videos I’ve seen lately but Matt Daniels’ cinematography alone is worth the 1.5 seconds it will take to move your mouse-hand slightly downwards to click the play button.


My pal Brian over at Shotsringout has a great little interview with Daniels as well.

ImprovEverywhere / Welcome Back!

Improv Everywhere strikes again! This time around they are welcoming total strangers at JFK airport! Flowers, balloons, and personalised posters (names taken from car driver signs)! Great stuff!

I know there will be comments regarding the fact that they plug Absolut at the end but hey we all gotta eat and I can appreciate how minimal they kept the advertising.
