Fleshing out ideas

Watching the world go by

The hardest part of a new design for me is taking what seem like a great idea in my head and getting it to work in the real world. People are often shocked when I tell them how long it takes to make a decent illustration. There seems to be a misconception that making art / design is quick and easy. And to be fair, I know some artists who do manage to produce quality work in very little time. Unfortunately this is not the case for all of us.

Random Pretties

I love it when designers and artists take a humdrum item from everyday life and transform it. They force one to look at the world with new eyes and appreciate the beauty that we often miss. Take the humble potato for instance. They take up space in your kitchen as shapeless beige lumps which are more appreciated for their taste than their looks. Mind you, potatoes are pretty darn tasty when given the right treatment. But I’ve never considered them to be very visually appealing. Until now. Take a look at the photos below – potatoes are magical! I’m sure that you’ll agree that the artist has found something in the humble potato that we have all been missing.

The death of IE6

It’s official. Internet Explorer 6, more affectionately known as IE6 to most of us, has passed away after 8 years on the Intrawebs scene. You may now take a moment of silence to quietly whoop so as not to disturb the rest of the occupants of your cubicle farm.

Even though most companies, including Google, is ceasing support, some people still have this beauty installed on their computers. The mind boggles. If you are guilty of this, please remedy the situation by getting yourself a new browser. There are many options available such as Firefox and Google Chrome.

To commemorate the event, a design company in Denver hosted the funeral last night. All friends and loved ones were invited and those unable to attend were requested to send flowers. Unfortunately I missed the happy event, but you can still go take a sneaky peeky at the official page and comments. It’s good for a giggle.
