Toast Messenger

10 06 2011

This concept is so cool! Its called a Toast Messenger. Basically you write down (or draw) little messages on the white board looking surface with a special marker and put the toast in to be toasted. Once its done and you pull it out, the message is replicated onto the toast! It’s such a unique idea! It would definitely motivate me to get up and eat breakfast in the morning haha. Although the only downside is that this little creation isnt actually real.. YET. This is just a picture photoshoped and edited to display the creators idea. Apparently it would be extremely hard to create such a thing, but I wont be surprised if we see it in stores next year ūüėČ haha!


Graffiti At Its Finest!

3 05 2011

Some people consider graffiti a disgrace to the public. Town workers spend countless hours power washing signs or painting walls white to wipe off the graffiti but I think graffiti is a type of art that should be respected. Graffiti can be beautiful and it can also be witty, here are a few pictures that put witty graffiti to good use! :

Stop, Hammertime!

Stop Bush

Up here, Silly!

Come on paint me white again

What is this for?

Level 2B or not 2B

Pst. Don’t look now, but there’s a cop behind you!

I think typography is a really creative way to play with a simple text. It leaves a lasting impression on the audience and allows us to feel more effectively for the moral of the text. Here are a few great examples of people who’ve played around with typography:

PKMzeta – Perfect Recall

3 05 2011

I stumbled upon this article was I was surfing the internet just now…

Science¬†has yet again made a new discovery. This new discovery is called PKMzeta.¬†Scientists noticed that there are so many substances out in the world that can distort memory¬†and no (or not enough) subtances¬†that can do the exact opposite – restore memory. PKMzeta is¬†basically an enzyme in the brain that allows one to successfully store things they’ve learned, saw, heard etc. as well as maintain a crisp long term memory.¬†The experiment was tested on rats. When the scientists boosted the level of PKMzeta in the rats brain, they recalled their past experiences in great detail… Scientists claim that his enzyme boost is “modest” but I’m not sure about that… If we were meant to recall so much memory, then I believe our bodies would naturally allow us to. There are many drugs out there that can cause more bad than good. PKMzeta is a pretty new discovery – as of November 2010… I don’t think scientist have figured out any side effects on the drug yet. I think once you start taking medication for something, you need to start taking more medication for something else and the amount of pills you take just adds up. To the contrary, this drug may possibly be a saving grace for elders who have alzheimers… though one would have to take the drug long before they have alzheimers to keep memories vivid.

I was reading comments on one of the links and people were saying that this is just another drug that will let people drink, smoke and shoot up more because all the bad side effects of all of the above can be washed away with this enzyme.

I don’t know… I’m pretty paranoid when I take medicine, I wouldn’t risk my health for something that seems so artificial like PKMzeta… Especially if it’s messing with your brain.

What do you think?

Awareness of Animation

26 04 2011

Television Show:

The animation above is a drawing from the simpsons. The characters name is Lisa.


The animation drawing above is from the Disney movie Bambi.

TV Commerical:

This animation picture above is for the Audi Q5. It shows the different engineering used to create the commerical

Childrens Cartoons

The above animation is of a childrens show that I used to watch when I was younger back in the 1990’s. It is animation of Tom & Jerry. Each episode was usually based on different ways the cat could lure the mouse so he could eat him.


The website is really a “google” for everything artistic, but there is an abundance of comic/animation/flip book type creations that are really cool to surf through.

Video Game:

This animation above is super mario for the nintendo in which is very dated.

The Hip-Hop Church

20 04 2011

This is a great idea, a¬†“Hip Hop Church”. I saw this while I was randomly surfing the internet a moment ago and decided to read up a little more on it. When you think of hip hop and church, you think they’re on 2 totally different ends of the spectrum…. which is true, your right. The church believes that the corruption of todays youth is due to the violent words and such from hip hop. Also the church believes that hip hop influences the youth¬†to defy the church…. but personally I dont really believe that. I believe its the pop music out there such as Kesha, Katy Perry, Rihanna etc. Their¬†music is always sexual on some level. Also,¬†pop music is so easily accessible, its always on the radio considering the fact that its pop-ular…

Anyway, 2 pastors in america decided to combine hip hop and church together for 1 reason: They both are after the same thing – the attention of the youth. The 2 pastors thought instead of both entities fighting for the attention, why dont they just join together and create a more effective and innovative way to grasp the youth. I think this is a wonderful idea and I’d love to see it fly and possibly spread up to canada. Obviously the traditional church go-ers wont agree with this idea of church but I think its a great way to introduce the youth to church – and if theyre already familiar with church, well then I think its a great refreshment!

Ad Jam #3

18 04 2011


1. This advertisement represets all the widely known brands in society out there today.

2. In this advertisement, there aren’t necessarily any products being used but rather the brand name of products that are tattooed onto a baby

3. The imagery used in this advertisement is a naked mother breastfeeding her naked baby whom is branded with many popular brand names.

4. There is no text in this advertisement. The imagery speaks for itself.

5. The elements and principles of design are used very well in this advertisement. The grey background compliments the skin tones of the people as well as the logos tattooed onto the baby. It would be much harder to focus on the logos on the child had the background been colourful

6. The target audience for this advertisement is anyone who purchases or sells products… which is basically everyone

7. The Ad Jam conveys a clear and successful message. The ad turns something so beautiful and natural such as breastfeeding into an image that we feel empathy for.

8. I believe this ad does not need improvement. I think the ad speaks for itself so there is no use for text and I think the colouring of the image creates the perfect tone and emotion the audience is supposed to feel. I like how subtle the ad is meanwhile the problem of this ad is much bigger.
