Uncommon launched today. We're all rather excited. It's a project based out of our office, developed by a few homies of mine, and is sure to blow up.
To quote coolhunting:
Using an on-demand digital printing process Uncommon, which launched today, enables unlimited possibilities for customizing device cases. The process, branded 3D TATT™ (Thermo-Active Transdermal Technology), is a sublimation technique that embeds the image deep in the plastic case which means that it won't smear or scratch off like other surface printing techniques tend to do. Uncommon can print artwork, designs or photographs on a case, or you can choose from a portfolio of over 150 artists and brands already on board. The launch collection features work from Phunk (above, left), Candybird, David Ellis (above, right), MQ, Mode 2 and Christopher Lee (above, middle), among others.
Roberto and I have been developing an iPhone app for this which has yet to launch. It will allow you to design your case from your iPhone. Launch your photo library, upload, and customize your own, or pick someone else's art to crop down. Looking forward to it. Stay tuned.

Very worthwhile google image search: "goats in trees." I've selected a few of my favorites to save you the effort, and I've thrown in a video of sixteen goats clown-carring out of a tree.

SFG and Josh's baby designed by me and coded by buyolympia featuring work from Art Chantry, Kate Moross, Ed Fella, and Hannah Stouffer. And that's only the first four months. 99 bucks for 6 shirts delivered to your doorstep over the next 6 months? Get 'em while they're hot!
But enough of the sales pitch. I must admit I'm rather pleased with the way this design turned out. A hats-off to buyolympia for breathing life into my static web design.

Not too sure what to make of this "French Eccentric/Perv" but I'm pretty sure this video is great.
Yeah, I know. I've been posting a lot of music vids lately. What can I say? Business is slow and I've been listening to a lot of new music.
Project Gallery Opening Exhibition Poster
Two ladies are opening an art gallery in the middle of a recession in Stillwater, Oklahoma. This poster is for their debut exhibition. Poster copy worded by none other than Ministry of Imagery. And in case you can't tell due to screen resolution, that's a giagantic maze. 18" x 24" two color screenprint.

Anybody else feeling left out on what P-Diddy is thinking at all times? Well you might want to think twice about that. Man just doesn't have a whole lot to say, yet he still says it often. However! Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, Rainn Wilson, LeVar Burton, Tina Fey, Steven Colbert, David Lynch, David Wain, Tim and Eric, and Rob Corddry always entertain. It's an interesting way to keep tabs on how other people's brains work. You can even post whatever comes to your mind and pretend like everyone reads it and finds it enlightening or entertaining.
If you would like to find out how my brain works and want to follow along, holler and I'll send you a link to my twitter page. But I don't really feel like posting it too publicly at this point.
I just finished 7 desktop wallpapers for the Plazm blog with my latest favorite photoshop effect which just happens to look fucking wicked on pics of outer space. I'm interested in the idea of the infinite vacuum of space viewed thru a computer screen. Is the internet infinite also? If you haven't yet seen Google Sky, it is a great way to spend an evening, but might leave you feeling slightly humbled. Find your screen resolution below, and discover the cosmos in wonderfully pixelated 72 dpi. Don't scale the image to fit! It just won't look as good. I promise.

I was recently asked to create a Plazm Blog to match the Plazm Site. So I buckled down and figured out how to speak basic computer. Since then I've been tweaking out CSS of other blogspots I am a part of, one which you are looking at right now. Here's the new Plazm Blog, and heres the recently remodeled That's Pretty Good.
