This is absolutely ridiculous. So, TechCrunch decides to do a story on GraffitiGeo. Here’s the problem… they’re a direct ripoff of GeoGraffiti… you can even see it in the name. GraffitiGeo is GeoGraffiti reversed. This is so upsetting. Go see it for yourselves. LAME. LAME. LAME.

Go write your comments of anger! hehehe… I just don’t like copycats.
To add to the little sparkle of MadMen’s season premiere is their new promo site. You get to MadMen yourself. Very cool. That’s me on the top… well, I tried… and I’m pitching, Yeah!
MadMen is one of the greatest shows on TV. It’s produced by Matthew Weiner. The story revolves around Don Draper, the creative director of the agency– show is mostly about his life- and the people around him.

I came across FormTroopers thanks to ComputerLove. The work is amazing but the website is just absolutely sexy! Wow, I’m just speechless.
FormTroopers is a design studio based in Denmark. It was founded in 2009 by Toke Blicher Møller and Jeppe Bingestam.
This is an idea that I came across last week. At first, my initial thoughts were – ewwwww— that’s gross! Why would I want to see an art piece in 72ppi, small resolution, and sitting on my computer. Then, as I was thinking about it… I thought, that’s GENIUS! It really is – just let the thought settle in your mind a bit…
Ok, think about it now – you’re an artist, right? you want people to see your work, right? Well, sometimes it’s hard to get people to see your work. There are many obstacles that one has to go through. If shows land on Thursdays then you have to worry about the people who have work. If shows are on Fridays or Saturdays then you have to worry about all the people who all ready have plans. Then there’s the people who would much rather spend their evening with friends at a bar or club rather than an art show. Then there’s people who work. There’s also the question of getting a space. Sometimes we run low on cash- sometimes it’s hard to pay that fee to rent out the space. Sometimes it’s too hard to get your work selected for a major or more professional art gallery. There’s just so many obstacles to get your work seen by the populace. It’s even harder for a beginner – someone who just started showcasing their work. Entry levels artists and designers don’t have much money to be spending on 500+ flyers… or websites… or whatever… so what does one do?
You let the world take a glimpse of your mind on the greatest and most seen venue around… the World Wide Web. Anyone can see it. It takes only a few second for someone to take a glimpse of the artist’s work. If I like it then I’ll go and take the time to find out more information. It’s great! If a group of friends, artists, designers get together to host a mini-show online then this would showcase the work to millions of people world wide.
This is one online show done by Diesel This one is great because the flash is amazing!
