THIS SHIT IS BANANAS.

In November of last year, Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan accomplished a feat rarely achieved by any modern artist other than maybe Banksy – or Kanye off his meds – when at the prestigious #ArtBasel show in Miami Beach, he attached a banana to a wall with duct tape, submitting his first show-cased piece in almost 15 years. Not since Marcel Duchamp’s iconic 1917 piece “The Fountain”, or Kendall Jenner’s unquestionably avant-garde 2017 “Live for Now” Pepsi commercial, has the public seen work of such disruptive, conceptual enormity or thought-provoking complexity than it did with this fucking banana on a wall.

COLOR IN CONTRAST

MAD MEN: COLOR IN CONTRAST OR God damn it Peggy, the colors in this ad are all wrong! Now get out of here and re… What are you crying? Stop crying. You should be thanking me. There are a thousand girls in this city, all prettier than you, who would kill for this job. Now get out of my office and fix these mock-ups before the client gets here! *door slams. Don picks up the phone. Mrs. Blankenship? Hold my calls, I’m taking a nap. So, I’ve recently re-watched all seven seasons of AMC’s historical fiction, period dramedy, 92-episode, surgeon

Productivity Porn & Mental Masturbation

Boy, I’ll tell ya… Between reading all these “boost your productivity overnight” lifehack articles, and watching “Become rich yesterday by following these three simple and oddly vague investment tips Wallstreet does NOT want you to know about” webinars, to enrolling in Masterclasses on how to become a super-human, knowledge-crazed, learning-addicted, Terminator’esque reading-machine, I’m so far behind on my actual work that I’m gonna need Doc Brown’s keys, Aladdin’s lamp and half of all the Adderall at fucking CU if I’m ever gonna crawl outa these weeds. Finding new and fun ways to be more productive is great. Gold star bro!

Quantity Killed Quality

QUANTITY KILLED QUALITY Post-modern pop-cultural preconceptions of post theory and other social media mumblings. Is it just me, or has the quantity of social media content these days become so much more important to us than the quality of it, that it seems like we’re just two unfollows away from adding the line “Post 10 selfies by THIS Friday!” to our list of things we can’t forget to do if our fucking house is ever on fire? Number 1: Grab our toasted-caramel colored maltipoos Khaleesi and John Snow out of their respective bamboo habitats. Number 2: Remember to take that

Work Hard, Play Hard

WORK HARD, PLAY HARD Lunch Atop A Skyscraper Design Work Hard, Play Hard I just got back from Ibiza, an island off the coast of Spain known the world over for it’s – shall we say – atypically populated theme parks, and it was fucking amazing. Not because of all the reading I caught up on, or because of how hydrated I stayed literally the entire time, or even because of all that low-income affordable housing we were able to build for the surprisingly large population of homeless nuns and kittens inhabiting the island… anyone buying that? Bueller? No, it

TOUBAB KREWE

TOUBAB KREWE I designed the 2010 TOUBAB KREWE album entitled TK2. Available on Amazon and streaming on Spotify. Blending American and West African influences into a sound all its own, Toubab Krewe has set “a new standard for fusions of rock ‘n’ roll and West African music” (Afropop Worldwide). Since forming in 2005, the magnetic instrumental quintet has won a diverse and devoted following at performances everywhere from Bonnaroo to the legendary Festival of the Desert in Essakane, Mali, the most remote festival in the world. The band developed their unique sound over the course of numerous extended trips to Mali, Guinea, and Ivory

Colored Pencil Art

Where the fuck did the time go? And other stupid fucking questions. Many many years ago, when I was but a young, rather husky lad with a British accent and a perfectly groomed, helmet-sized bouffant haircut that made aaallll the ladies say, “oh my god… is that little fat girl ok?”, I was a very different kind of artist. Back before everyone was vaping Whiteclaws while not driving their self-driving Teslas, or sliding gluten-free memes into bae’s DMs, or making twerking Tik-Tok videos to Lizzo songs; back when we had to wait a week for every next episode, back when

The one where Jash drank all the gin.

WHAT THE FUCK IS FUNNY GRAPHIC DESIGN?  I do not have a design style of my own you guys. I never really have. If you’ve ever seen more than a couple of the self-indulgent, fever-dream digital diary entries I shamelessly refer to as “artwork” you’ll know that, like an 11 year old playing chess with ADD and parents who are vehemently in denial about it, I’m all over the board. Like Columbus with Stevie Wonder as ship’s navigator, I’m all over the map. Like the band One Direction if it’s most famous member was abducted by a gaggle of screaming
