Gandhi as potato, Spam as art, and more

  • George Carlin points out that when considering life via license plate slogans, "Somewhere between ‘Live Free Or Die’ and ‘Famous Potatoes,’ the truth lies… I’m guessing it’s closer to ‘Famous Potatoes.’"  The Pfanni company might agree, and they cheerfully offer "Only good potatoes."
  • Guilherme Marconi‘s illustrations explode with color and detail. [Via]
  • Christopher Lee makes super fun, retro-fab creations.  Roll over the little hearts under the pieces in his illustration setup to see details & concept sketches.
  • Linzie Hunter beautifully subverts junk mail with her Spam one-liners illustrations.  [Via]
  • "My line paintings are painted using one continuous line with a beginning, and an ending," says Geoff Slater of his line paintings.  "Although it changes colour, the line never touches, or crosses itself. [Via]
  • MIT’s John Maeda talks about his process for creating an illustration for the NYT.
  • Creator & creation: There’s something in the water reminds me of Animator vs. Animation.
  • Veer offers a rad collection of vintage sci-fi imagery.  (I think I once had this guy as a gym teacher.)

    Hi John
    Being someone from the land of Gandhi- I am sorry to say that I can not understand this post and its relevance to a saint!
    Can you please explain the relevance of your topic to Ven. Gandhi?
    I am subscribing to this post- and I’ll keep an eye on your reply to my concern.
    The last time some-one tried to play a joke on Gandhi on YouTube with a Video and the site was immediately banned in India following which YouTube had to withdraw the clips.
    I believe what you wrote is in great intentions and you never intended to hurt the sentiments.
    Anyway, I’ll be waiting-
    Some one from the Land of Gandhi

    To the person who posted above – if you follow the links in his post, you’ll see where the reference to Gandhi is… along with Mother Theresa, Dalai Lama and others.
    Hint – start with the top link and work your way down.
