Youtube Challenge: Best Boom.

It’s been a little bit since the mind-blowing success of the first Youtube Challenge – so here’s challenge #2. Find the best example of a “Boom” on youtube. Open for interpretation – the funnier the better. Leave a comment with a link to your choice. I’ll add your youtube videos to this post. Andrew Pancubit posted this first video on Booooooom’s fan page which gave me the idea.

Andrew P. – Haha this one will be hard to beat. Love the graphics on the giant video screen. Nice one Mr. P.

Rest of the submissions after the jump!

Project #2 – Instructions!

Here we go again! Booooooom! Project #2! Draw with Light! There is a submission form at the end of this post. I will gather up submissions and create a gallery of your submitted work. Be sure to include your name, email, and website so other visitors can see who made what!

For this project you’ll need a flashlight or some other portable light source (cellphones work!) and a camera that has a manual shutter (the shutter needs to be able to open for at least a few seconds). Any SLR would be perfect and many point-&-shoot cameras have this ability. Read More

Insight.

Does Insight have the best art direction or what? (If you say “what” I’ll kill you with my bare hands). Have a look at some selections from their upcoming surf, skate and women’s ad campaigns and you’ll see why they are one of the best brands out there right now (my 2 cents).

Jeremy Geddes

Jeremy Geddes’ oil paintings literally made my jaw drop when I came across them. His images look like still frames from a Chris Cunningham music video (I mean that as a compliment).

Have I mentioned how much I love Improv Everywhere? Okay okay, but I haven’t mentioned them at all this week! (Yes, I realise it’s Monday) What you see below is their latest work which involved no mirrors, just a healthy number of identical twins!
