David Kassan: iPad FingerPainting

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Awesome! A quick Apple ipad live fingerpainting demo that I streamed live from my Brooklyn studio on Monday June 21st. 2010, The model sat for 3 hours as I painted and answered questions on how I use the iPad and the Brushes app. Just thinking of creative uses for the ipad.”

Spider Crab Shelling!

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

I’ve heard about crustaceans crawling out of their own shells but I’ve never seen a spider crab with long legs yank itself out with such ease. It sure makes my crab eating skills an embarrassment. How cool would it be if you could just pull out all the meat all at once skipping the hammer and crackers!
Watch the video above and starting around 0:55 it gets mighty fascinating!

Alo Drink

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

It’s been awhile since I last posted about a new beverage but this week I came upon a refreshing drink called Alo which infuses aloe bites along with an assortment of other flavors giving water a nice simple zest. I think I’ve had something like his in Hong Kong before. I first had the aloe with wheat grass mix called Awaken and just picked up the original aloe version called Exposed, but they have quite a few new assortments of flavors on their website which I have yet to come by at a store. Anyhow, go give Alo a try… these bottles cost me about $5 each so hopefully it’ll be available in bulk to customers for a better price soon…. otherwise Alo is DELICIOUS!

David Byrne (RISD drop out alumn) talks about how architecture helped music evolve. I relate this a lot to how your deskspace both digital and physical affect your creative work.

Icon Letter and Envelope

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Following an old but still fun trend in pixelating products in our world is turning digital icons into products. This is probably one of my favorites but I really can’t wait until our entire physical world is represented by 2d objects… graphics and products at their best… at least visually.

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

I’ve seen some pretty creative proposals (ie, the designers proposal), but when the person proposing is in the film/entertainment world, this is what you get! How awesome. Watch the entertainment proposal above or here.
