Hi guys! I just am going to take a quick second to plug my new portfolio. Check it out! CraigScales.com
The new Max Payne video billboard looks cool graphically but lately I’ve been noticing that the painters haven’t been adding as much detail into the work. It seems that ever since they took down the ad for “Puss in Boots” that they got sloppy. Oh well, it’s great to see these hand-painted advertisements still part of the downtown scene.
I love these hand painted murals painted on the Figueroa Building in Downtown L.A.. Fortunately for me, I live close by and can always see when something new comes up. The latest installment: an ad for Sasha Baren Cohen’s new film, “The Dictator”. Enjoy.
How dangerous are the new bills that would increase censorship in America really? Read about it and watch an info-video here.
What does it mean? Can you tell Benetton is clothing company? Their willingness to send these provocative images out in the biosphere has thrust this once small, Italian clothing company into the spot light. At the center of their message is one of unity. We are all one race so why can’t we be like the horses where it doesn’t matter what color you are? Stamping out racism fashionably has been part of Benetton’s mission since at least the 1980s.
Now they are under fire for a series of ads featuring prominent world leaders kissing. They titled the campaign, “Unhate” to inspire our nations to put aside their differences and find peace. So far, the pope has already asked for the ad to be removed calling it an “unacceptable humiliation.” Hopefully the Vatican can understand the intent behind the advertisement and rally behind the cause instead of impeding upon this intellectual social revolution that often needs shock and awe to gain momentum. The world will watch as the other world figures photoshopped into the lip-locking campaign have yet to comment.
