7-11 is remaking a bunch of stores to look like the Quicky Mart from the Simpsons….with actual products, like Krusty-O’s.

alphamonkey sez: If I can buy an all-syrup Squishee, I’m totally there.

Clean lil Nemo

in Comics!

CG from The Pinker Tones for “Karma Hunters”

Pesky and repetitive….Reminds me of the lil Nemo comics from the 1930’s

All us ad people are out of a job.  Damn you, interweb!

The AdGenerator is a generative artwork that explores how advertising uses and manipulates language. Words and semantic structures from real corporate slogans are remixed and randomized to generate invented slogans. These slogans are then paired with related images from Flickr, thereby generating fake advertisements on the fly. By remixing corporate slogans, I intend to show how the language of advertising is both deeply meaningful, in that it represents real cultural values and desires, and yet utterly meaningless in that these ideas have no relationship to the products being sold. In using the Flickr images, the piece explores the relationship between language and image, and how meaning is constructed by the juxtaposition of the two.

The AdGenerator was created by Alexis Lloyd as a component of an MFA thesis project in the Design and Technology department at Parsons The New School for Design.

Here’s one of the original Japanese spots for Katamari Damacy!

alphamonkey sez: Ah, Katamari! How I love thee! This weekend I turned some friends on to the joy that is KD via nothing more than the game’s 50 second introIf this doesn’t wet your whistle, nothing will.

Grotesquely distorted from the human form from which they derive, these are the insides of the characters you know so well.  Talk a walk with Michael Paulus through the world of cartoon skeletal systems. 

alphamonkey sez: We first showcased Michael Paulus back in 2004, but wouldn’t you know it?  He drew more stuff! Enjoy and while you’re there, take a gander at his other work

Michael Deas is the guy who paints stamps.  The ones we’ve all seen, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Tennessee Williams as well as a number of familiar logos.  Didn’t you always wonder who did the Columbia Pictures Logo?

Ever wondered about the artwork scattered throughout the subway? Here’s a list of over 125 artworks in New York City Subway Stations.

This is a good overview of the artwork (comissioned, not including the grafitti) that decorates the NY City Subway system.  One of my relatives did a piece in Union Square too!  The main site is worth exploring as well.

Another remake of a Gunther video… a Korean Vampire.  Yes.  I said it.

O no you did nnnnn t.

Gunther’s Korean friend has been out too late.

This is a remix(?) of Gunther’s Ding Dong Song.  Fabulous.

alphamonkey’s note: This is a streaming file (which I’m normally loathe to post), but it’s hysterical enough to put up with some buffering.
