Halloween Pumpkin Art Carvings

As we all know, Halloween is just round the corner and what better to prepare for it than to carve your own pumpkins.

There are many styles that you can carve a pumpkin. But which one will you choose? A scary one? Funny? Strange? Artistic? It’s all down  to preference and skill. Anyone can carve out two eyes and a mouth and stick a candle in there, but how many people can make you say wow?

There are in fact artists who specialise in carving pumpkins.  Most of them are just sculptors who are experimenting on other materials. But I found this artist ‘Ray Villafane‘ who has some really creative work with pumpkins and other mediums.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses

Seems like this is the new ‘In’ thing this month. An artist has redesigned the way we think of the human form. It’s actually quite funny and very cleaver. By taking someone’s nose and drawing an outline of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle around it the tip of the nose is a perfect shape and dimension of them.

iPhone 4S to be Renamed as iPhone 4Steve

The big rumour that Apple named the new iPhone 4S after Steve Jobs is unclear. We might never find out that it was named 4Steve.

But as this quickly escalated around the internet there is mixed views on whether it should be named in loving memory of Steve Jobs. Does the S in 4S stand for Speed? Or should it stand for Steve? For everything that he has done for the company, I think that Apple should rename it 4Steve.

I hereby propose that the iPhone 4S be named as the iPhone 4Steve. Please sign this petition to get it trending and apple might even change it!



iPhone 4S – 4Steve

Steve Jobs the co-founder and former chief executive of Apple has died at the age of 56.

As most people seen this coming, Steve Jobs got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003, and after three periods of sickness leave, resigned as Apple CEO in August 2011. This unfortunately ended his life. How will Apple cope now?

It has been reported that the new iPhone 4S was named for Steve Jobs himself. The 4 (for) and S (Steve). was this coincidence? Or did they see it coming? Is it some kind of plan to drive more sales in the memory of Steve jobs?

The Adventures of Sweet & Revenge

In my few years at college I created some characters and story lines that I eventually animated into a short clip. It may have taken ages to make the 30 second clip, but I was worth the while. Lately I’ve noticed the lack of Designing that I have been doing since I graduated with a BA Hons in Graphic Design. It could be down to how much the course was so far up its own arse that it made me hate it, or how busy I’ve been with other things.

So the other day, I sit down and start surfing the web, as you do. I find a page that some small business is looking for graphic designers to create a simple logo for their company. The price they are offering is $50. Which is nothing to a designer. Not only do you have to come up with the idea but you also have to design it as well….all for $50. What a joke. So me being me, decides to create the most basic logo for the company as a joke and send it off.

So the company name is ‘Sweet Revenge’ and they are a bakery. Oh so funny! I get it!…lame. Ideas start to flow through my brain relating the word sweet to an object and revenge. At first I thought of a vampire sucking the throat of a piñata but for a bakery seems a bit over the top. So I simplified it down to this-

Sweet & Revenge

Sweet Revenge

I’ve decided against posting this idea to the company. I think they could become our friends and have a good life ahead of them within my muddled up brain that they hop around in. When I get the time, I’ll show off my Flash skills and create these good looking fellows into an animation. They might need a bit more work on them, like shading but I like to keep it simple, otherwise it just makes things more annoying.
