Browser Wars

June 27, 2011

Sketchhoholic’s recent weekend contest entitled Browser Wars. Rules were to depict at least 2 browsers battling it out with as much imagination as possible. Even though it was a tiny contest, I think they picked a great winner! Shoze came up with this brilliant sketch which I absolutely love! Check out their other work on their blog here.

Wrapping Presents

June 14, 2011

I am not a fan of wrapping paper. For the most part, I like to wrap my presents with whatever paper I can find that is big enough (butcher, craft, tracing paper or newspaper) and personalize it with tape or bows I have made myself out of magazine paper. But since it’s wedding season, a bit of vinyl is even better. For my cousin’s bridal present I used white craft paper and a simple silhouette with two colors of vinyl. What DIY gift wrapping ideas do you guys have? I’d love to see the pictures!

Live Angry Birds

June 10, 2011

For some reason, everyone LOVES angry birds. The concept is so simple but the graphics are so fun. T-mobile’s newest ad recreated a live version of Angry Birds where people can walk up to a booth and play via a provided iPhone to see the results times twenty. They did an amazing job recreating it complete with popping pigs and a live band playing the Angry Birds theme song. They really should set this up in every major city because I would love to see and play this myself. Check out the video…what game would you recreate?
