Alien Vs. Predator Skate Deck

9 Sep 2010, 9:00am

This is a skate deck really tickles me.

Wait, that didn’t sound right.

This is a skate deck I can really get behind.

No, that’s not right either.

Never mind.

(Thanks, Andy!)

Tiny Art Director

21 May 2009, 11:31am

Dad has four-year-old daughter. Daughter asks dad to draw something. Dad draws. Then, daughter critiques drawing. Then dad posts the crtique and drawing on his blog. Brilliant!


The Brief: A mama snail and a baby snail
The Critique: I’m sorry to say that you’re worser than me. You gotta learn to draw as me. You just don’t draw so well. Why do you think that is? It turns out that I’m the good draw-er. It turns out that you’re the art director.
Artists Note: The critique is on the initial sketch, and compares to hers. She actually likes the painting.
Job Status: Provisionally Approved, pending addition of jumping fish in the lake

Dude’s got a book deal, too.

Name My Design Company Machine

Name My Design Company Machine

I have always been asked, “Why ‘Big Plastic Head’?” And I’m all, “I don’t know. It just sounds badass and is easy to remember.” And then they are all, “Pft. Whatever.” And then they never ask about it again. Nor return to the site. (Unless ‘they’ are my wife and brother-in-law. They are like groupies. Seriously. Can’t shake ’em.)

I guess next time I’ll use the “Name My Design Company Machine” from Breadline. It does a pretty good job except there are too many animals and not enough body parts. (One time it came up Green Banana Designs. Not bad, actually…)

Why America is F*cked (Graphically at Least)

29 Aug 2008, 10:52pm

(Whole lot of appropriate swearing in the video above. Might not be safe for work if you work in a cube.)

I have been meaning to post this. I have watched it about twelve times. This is a little rant by Aaron Draplin founder and proprietor of Draplin Design Co., North America. He is a designer with a passion for industrial designs of the past and and the designs of blue collar industries. He has a great eye. He knows what has heart and what doesn’t. He has a Dachshund named Gary. He swears like a sailor and damn him if he isn’t 100% right in this video. I am thinking that all designers should make a video like this and fight the idiots who can’t see the art or intrinsic value in a professional designer and have the idea that designers just push a bunch buttons all day without skill or talent. I deal with this crap all day.

Way to go, Aaron. Drop shadows, not bombs.
