A colossal cocktail of 9 blended limes, mixed with 12oz of jalapeño-infused José Cuervo® Gold tequila, an equal pour of Triple Sec®, and a healthy 6oz splash of Grand Marnier® served in a vintage sea-salt rimmed wooden bucket. Adorned with 2 bottles of Dos Equis® overturned and drowning in a sea of shaved ice, guaranteed to taste like a permanent vacation!. Heat things up a little more with your own travel-sized bottle of Dave's Insanity "Ghost Pepper" Sauce.
Enjoy a succulent 9 lbs fresh Atlantic lobster steamed to perfection, bathed in a sea of churned, farm-fresh butter and lovingly embraced by a 12oz New York sirloin cooked to your preference. Smother it all in a thick, heavy-cream garlic-rosemary butter sauce, only to be swarmed by a selection of our best scallions, each drowning in their own private Hell of butter and garlic.
Barnacle Pete's Oyster Shack: Life's Your Oyster, Just Shuck It!
As a personal project, I figured that I'd try out a variation on an old thought of "Everything deserves good design." This time around, I'm making small projects in which I make 'bad' things look 'good'.
In this first attempt, I thought that I would try my hand at the infamous Ouija Board. Since it's owned by Parker Brothers and Hasbro, it's essentially a toy. It's sold in toy stores (sometimes) in the boardgames aisle along side items like Snakes & Ladders and Candyland. So, why not make it look inviting to kids?
This one you see here is a work in progress. It's just first attempt and needs some more fine tuning and attention. (Or as my Creative Director would say, 'it needs more love.')
So far, I'm fairly proud of it. If it turns out well, I may get it printed out and make an actual board of it. A natural extension here would to also create the box art; but, that's more than what I'd like to commit to just yet.
TotallyFact!: Originally The Game of Thrones was to feature a 'Greek Chorus' style of exposition to be narrated by CGI animated crows/ravens. They would offer the audience more insight to the various families presented through the series.
Early drafts had them singing the narration which was later pared down to speaking in rhyme or rap-style speech. Later this was eliminated and their narration was simply to be either comical or stoic as the mood called for.
Some early proposals for voices were Patton Oswalt, Patrick Warburton, Diedrich Bader, Sarah Silverman, and Sarah Vowell.
I'm not entirely sure how this isn't stalking. This woman saw a man on the subway and now implores the city to find this perfect love for her. I understand this is an art project and the 'mystery man' could very well be her real boyfriend; but, if roles were reversed and this was a dude hunting down the perfect woman the police would be involved.
I applaud the effort and subverting the media for use as an extension in your art project. Of course, I really, really hope that's all this is. If successful, I sense eHarmony or OKCupid trying to do a similar ad ploy. Why? Because I'm jaded.
For my contribution, I present my own art piece:
ACT I, SCENE I
"Sir… this is a letter from your mother saying you can have a day off work. No where on here does it say you can climb on top of a city bus shooting off fireworks.
No sir, I do not recognize this bus as a sovereign state nor do I recognize you as its 'King'.
Sir, come down from there, your bathrobe is all too revealing. Especially in this weather.
OK, close your robe, I'm getting out the pepper spray."
