Toyota Hybrid X Concept

Despite being really lame and putting an “X” in the name, this is soooooo rad. Why don’t cars look like this already? Who wouldn’t want this car?? Thank god for Toyota stepping up the hot looking hybrids. Maybe hybrids will be the way to get futuristic cars onto the road, instead of shitty looking Fords.

Want 2 Be Square

Want 2 Be Square

Last Saturday I went to Scion’s Want 2 B Square show in Culver City. It was a one night only event which featured Dalek, UPSO, Maya Hayuk, Sage Vaughn, Matzu MTP, Kelsey Brookes, and Freddi C. The artists painted 48″x 48″and 24″x 24″panels, the larger ones being constructed into boxes that hung from the ceiling. You could then step onto a platform and look at the art from inside the box. A very cool way to display it.

The show ended up being really awesome. I recognized UPSO, but didn’t speak to him. All of the artists did a really great job on their pieces, and there was free beer, which is always good. There was also a really rad custom built photo booth that took while it took your picture, it showed a piece of art on your face. At the same time, it was broadcast the picture to projectors around the room, showing everyone the pictures you took. Garrett and I made friends with the creator of the thing, and were able to each get a print of it.
We also got a big bag of free shit, which ended up not being that great. But they did put a lot of effort into it, I’ll give them that.

Lots more pictures after the jump!

Urban Outfitters Blog

Urban Outfitters Blog

I remember the first time I went to Urban Outfitters, it was the one down the street from Union Square in San Francisco. It was the coolest store I had ever been in. The fact that it was like 4 stories just made it amazing to me. Now near 10 years later, I realize that Urban Outfitters is really over priced and rips off t-shirt designs.

But the one thing I still love, is their graphic and in store design. It’s always consistently well done, they’re current design being done by the EXTREMELY wonderful National Forest. Now they’ve taken the style that they carry so well and translated it into a blog. So far it seems pretty cool showcasing magazines, music videos, bands… although it seems like most entries are somehow tied into the brand of the store. The formatting of it is really interesting as well, with the entires being divided up by place, like Los Angeles or London, instead of category.

WWF’s Black Cloud Advertisement

WWF’s Black Cloud Advertisement

Black Cloud advertisement by Ogilvy Beijing.

The picture above is an ad for WWF’s 20 ways to 20% campaign running in China. It encourages and informs people that even the smallest change helps some, especially in a country with over 1.3 billion people. I love the entire execution of this. Visually showing how much your car pollutes per day makes it all the stronger, but the black cloud is kind of cute at the same time!

Kozyndan’s Bunnyfish

Kozyndan’s Bunnyfish

I had to post a picture of Kozy and Dan’s school of wooden bunnyfish! These have to be the cutest things ever! I guess they have almost 50 of ‘em, ranging in size from 5.5 – 18″ long. They’re creating them for a show in June at Magic Pony. It’s too bad that Magic Pony is all the way up in Toronto, Canada!
