Taste See The Rainbow

Am i the only one who missed the boat with the Skittles 'Touch' Ad? recently it was announced that it was the most-watched TV/Video spot of 2007!

Here it is..

Most companies would freak out at an agency pitch suggesting that their product be linked to a life of misery - but that’s exactly what happened - the poor, beleagured man with the Midas-Skittles touch - this is totally counter-intuitive to most industry thinking.

Their latest is not quite as good, but still awesome compared to most.
It’s called “PiƱata”...

"Artforms of Nature"

Ernst Haeckel and his assistant Nicolaus von Miclucho-Maclay, photographed in the Canary Islands in 1866

Today i stumbled across the outstanding work of Ernst Haeckel.. an eminent German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist. Ernst Haeckel discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology, including phylum, phylogeny, ecology and the kingdom Protista. Busy man!

The published artwork of Haeckel includes over 100 detailed, multi-colour illustrations of animals and sea creatures: - Kunstformen der Natur "Artforms of Nature"

"Haeckel's literary output was extensive, working as a professor at the University of Jena for 47 years, and even at the time of the celebration of his sixtieth birthday at Jena in 1894, Haeckel had produced 42 works with nearly 13,000 pages, besides numerous scientific memoirs and illustrations."

He even coined the term 'First World War'. Outstanding. Here's some of my picks of his beautiful work..

Gerry Judah

Gerry Judah is wack!

In the last twenty years he has built a reputation for innovative designs for films, television, theatre, museums and spectacular public installations for many clients - more recently returning to his fine art roots. Go to his website now and watch the 9 minute film. Outstanding.
