This has been floating around for a couple days now but I still thought I’d share it. Similar to what The Simpsons did for The Simpsons Movie, Mad Men has rolled out a Mad Men Yourself application that let’s you created a stylized version of yourself that could exist in the Mad Men world. The art is rather similar to that of Shag, which I guess makes sense as both Shag’s work and Mad Men fall into a similar world.
The image above is supposed to me, so if you know me personally let me know if this look anything like me, I went with sort of a hip Mr. Rogers style… although I think I might look 45.
I’m a huge fan of William Shatner, the breadth of his career really shows how talented he is, even if he’s known for being a captain of a spaceship. In the clip above he makes a special appearance on the The Tonight Show with Conan O’ Brien, and in a genius move, has interpreted Sarah Palin’s resignation in his very special beat performance kind of way. And while it actually sounds rather cool coming from the lips of William Shatner, it’s insane that this was the farewell speech of a governor of an entire state.

Although I’ve only just finished my first year studying illustration, I’m constantly on the search for new ideas and ways of expressing my creativity through lines, shapes and colours. It’s so cool to be apart of just us collective & I hope in time I can build upon my style to be up to the same standard of some of the amazing work I share the site with.
While I personally believe black foxes are the best, Sandy Skoglund’s gray foxes are pretty great as well. Skoglund was born in Massachusetts in 1964 and has been working as a conceptual artist since she moved to New York in 1972. The images above are from an installation called Fox Games which was first put up in 1989 but is currently on display at the Denver Art Museum.
I think she totally captured the essence of foxes and how they interact (not that I’m some weirdo fox expert who’s in touch with his inner fox) but they totally seem like one would expect them to act. Plus the effect of having their entire environment painted the same color red makes it seem quite surreal.

Check out these crazy advertisements for Ben and Jerry’s ice cream! I think these may be some of the most complex ads I’ve seen in a while, all of those elements created by hand. The ads were created by Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific Singapore, featuring words and phrases accompanied by some very Friends With You!-esque characters and creatures. These ads definitely caught my eye, though I’m not sure that it makes me want to eat ice cream anymore so than usual.
Check out a couple more of these ads under the cut.
