Pagans, Spinners, and Mentos, oh my
- "HWJR": How Would Jesus Roll? One man’s sacrilege is another’s act of devotion, as displayed through these illustrated Jesus rims. [Via]
- File under "How [Not] to Win Friends and Influence Pagans": folks in England are displeased by the giant chalk Homer illustration. [Via]
- The I Am Bored blog has amassed a great collection of CD hole art. (I wonder whether CD art will someday be a collector’s item, as album art has become.) [Via] On a related note, a certain pharmaceutical has gotten a similar notion. (I suppose the pagans would approve.)
- Mentos pioneers gumvertising, creating images out of the iconic little freshmakers. They have a site for creating your own images by drawing with gum, but it seems to be down at the moment.
- The "Zebra memorial crossing" is meant to memorialize pedestrians who’ve been struck by cars, thereby making the streets safer. Seemingly obvious irony: it appears to distract pedestrians at exactly the moment they’re in harm’s way.
- I enjoy the work of Russian illustrator Gordei. Not speaking Russian makes things that much more mysterious & intriguing. [Via]
- Washroom iconography: Useful. Washroom iconography + wiseass labels: way better. [Via]
