Mooooo

Those wild folk at Coca- Cola have come up with a new product called Vio… Whats so special about Vio? Well it contains skimmed milk mixed with sparking water, flavoured with fruit and sweetened with sugar, and you want to know the best bit?!! NO CHILLING REQUIRED!!!! AHHHHH, so, so wrong… “like a birthday party for a polar bear”, Was one quote from a copywriter from Coke. Well we will just have to wait and see, but I think it sounds awful.

Paper Love

I have blogged before about Origami and I’m always on the look out for paper sculptures and structures. Today I found this sweet wee animation by Makoto Yabuki called White Box and had to share it with you all. Enjoy.

This stool was made out of paper by Simone Pullens and she ensures that you can sit on the paper structure.

The work below is by Peter Callesen who mainly works with A4 sheets of paper, for a far more comprehensive explanation of his work check out his website.

Trainers make me very happy so here is a collection of the good, the bad and odd…

Reebok-Pump-Omni-Light-monsters-Pack-mogwai-4

Reebok Pump Omni Light (Mogwai). Gremlin’s insprired trainers… The folk at Reebok thought it would be a good idea to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Gremlins by bringing out a Monster Pack. I think they should of just watched the film instead of investive time and creativity into these furry beasts. Really, who thought it was a good idea?!!!

Jeremy-Scott-For-Adidas-js-Wings-1

Jeremy Scott for Adidas (JS Wings). So fly.

….and finally the odd
