Jay WIse "Foolish Things" Music Video

Hello everyone,
Here is a music video from hip hop artist Jay Wise. He's a talented artist and the video is definitely creative. I was asked to submit some designs for the background, which I did do. There are two different diamonds I illustrated and some airbrshed speakers that were used. I submitted some splatter, but it's difficult to recognize. I also make an appearance as one of the "experts". Overall it's a creative and fun video and not your typical hip hop music video, which I feel is lacking in most videos of all genres. Enjoy.

Cassette Tape Skeletons

So, I came across this little gem at Designboom and saw they posted a blog I'd like to share. An artist by the name of Brian Dettmer made amazing skeletons from cassette tapes. I know some of are you are wondering what a cassette tape is, but they contained music that you would listen to on a cassette player or a walkman. lol Well they're ancient in this modern age of technology, so it's good to see they are used in some form. Here's some a small bit of text from designboom. "atlanta based artist brian dettmer creates intricate sculptural skeletons using altered cassette tapes.
dettmer began creating the pieces in 2005 as he was thinking about the demise of analog media in
the increasingly digital world."

VIDEO: Screenprinting Process

This is a very good useful video about screenprinting. It takes you through the whole process of how it works. Some companies have automatic machines, which pretty much takes the printer manually putting the ink on the shirt or what have you out.

Here is another video from Branded Baron This is a quick video of the manual printing for the design "Astrohop"(Available Here)
