Inspiration is sometimes, something you find - perhaps an obscured
idea or found image, something unintentional and quite often accidental.
Make sure you don't spend all your time baiting the hook, ... jump.

This poster was part of a bigger project 
directed toward Nike’s efforts to centralize 
a font ( not funk ) bank for all Nike designers 
worldwide. 

The poster was created by sixteen in­house 
designers, each of whom designed a part 
independently.
 
All of the designs were then composed into 
the inspirational poster created for all 
in­house designers. 

The back of the poster highlights the font 
used in the design.

things most remarkable No.9
for extra marks - what are they ? ... exactly .

some of you really could use the extra marks, 
especially Really Big Larry and Wanda One Shoe )

Today we had a visit from a 
young designer Mr. Sean Yendrys. 
A brilliant former student, Sean 
graciously came back to talk to 
us about the Montreal Biennale. 
It was an interesting discussion, 
which touched upon street art, 
the politics and financing of public 
art and performance, free speech, 
Banksy's et al and the history and 
traditions of Biennale's in general. 
I recommend that you all check 
out the Montreal Biennale site and 
familiarize yourselves with what 
the Biennale is all about. It's still 
looking for volunteers to help out, 
and it might be lot of fun and really 
interesting to get involved with.

Dead Star, by Michel de Broin, is made from leftover batteries 
at the end of their day. I'm never gonna throw a battery away again.

your work or amusemento, look no farther you.

from the everything comes from somewhere series ....
an interesting if tangential article that my more ruthless, and well dressed students may enjoy. 

one of the few charms of middle age ....  if there are any,  is finally being able to see how things connect, or at least suspect how they might connect, and also, noticing how there are everywhere, very fine, nearly diaphanous ( look it up ) threads, that join so many human endeavours and aspirations together.
