Ran across a really cool idea if people have a lot of spare time. There are a few guys that take classic album covers and translate them into Microsoft Paint. The picture above is of a classic Beatles cover. Comment below if you can figure out the album title.
Anyways, it's a cool idea and not a bad thing to try to do if there was a rainy day. Just saying.

A few posts back, I referenced artist Damien Hirst as designing a bike for Nike and Lance Armstrong. The unveiling came through yesterday with this Trek butterfly design.

Toyota is "growing" some awareness with their 3rd generation Prius by providing free solar powered wifi and charge stations for the general public. The picture above is in Boston and will "sprout" around all major U.S. markets for the next 30-45 days. Hope those were enough corny flower related tie-ins.

Guess you CAN make lemonade out of apples...
Here's the article, hopefully it won't take a life of its own:

Ran into this online. San Diego's giant comic book convention, Comic-Con, has asked artists to artistically change the image of a lot of super heros and villains. The exhibition is in San Diego. Check it out if you're in the area. It's being put together by Subtext.
Even though summer is half way through, Ray Ban introduced their 2009 summer line of frames. The colors give the frames a youthful look, but they are sticking with their normal frame build. Hopefully we'll see some around Birmingham.
