    Amazing story here from about a month ago in the Cleveland Scene about an Ohio photographer who has documented a mystery artist’s graffiti writings for five years – and never met the scrawler.

  • You Should Know About Markham "Shitty Kitten" Maes

    / Comments (2)

    His moniker is hard to forget. So is his work. And we thank our friends at JoyEngine in Boulder for turning us onto this artistic powerhouse. We’re quoting from their apt description of him below.

    Born in Commerce City, CO Markham Shitty Kitten Maes has been drawing since as long as he could remember, which is paying off tenfold at this point in his career. Mr. Maes has become one of the top contemporary artists in this region. Screen printer by day, artist by night, Markham kicks out more high integrity original artwork than virtually any other young artist working in Colorado. Shitty’s style is a mash up between figurative character illustration and graffiti inspired typography. If you wanna lend some authentic emotion and heavy aesthetics to your next project, look no further.

    Amen, hallelujah. Welcome to our list of Recommended Talent, Shitty. That’s some unshitty work you’re droppin’.

    / Comments (9)

    Dissatisfied with their benefits package, and lack of commitment from their respective employers (MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, etc), New York freelancers have staged a huge walk-out. To a certain degree, we can sympathize with their plight, but on the other hand, since when do freelancers get benefits?

  • Two Half-Baked Ideas

    / Comments (0)

    We’ve been rolling around two ideas we wanted to get your take on before we put the work in on them.

    First, what do you think of creating a new gallery area of our site where you could upload work, much like FFFFound – like a repository for all things Denver? It can feature advertising, illustration, photography, whatever. No area to comment, just a dumping area for any good work you’re doing. Would you use it?

    Second, the whacked-out “Cultivator video”: from last week got us thinking about sponsoring an agency music video contest on the site between everyone in town. Would you be into that? Comments encouraged below.

  • Hombre Magazine Print

    While we look down on the product being advertised here, we definitely look up to the brilliant execution of this campaign. The spreads were glued together for Hombre men’s magazine so that the pages stuck together and ripped upon opening. Hard to believe it hasn’t been done before for this category. Agency: Leo Burnett, Buenos Aires.

  • Whopper Freakout

    Ah, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, how you love to continue dropping brilliant ideas into our lives. Here’s a new one for the 50th anniversary of the Whopper at Burger King where they took the delicious meaty sandwich off the menu at select locations and filmed people’s reactions. There’s a website tied into the effort as well as a plan to turn the footage into TV spots. Frickin’ gold.
