Here is a perfect example of why we love flash. James Patterson is nyc-based artist who currently has a show at BitForms. He has reminded us why flash is more than just flash. Users can interact with this amazing visceral world of sound color and creatures. There are a few more screens after the jump but, to really understand it check it out here or head over to Bitforms.
Eddie Van Halen keeps the surprises coming.
“These classic high top style shoes are identical to the red-black-and-white striped design worn by Eddie onstage for over a decade. Previously unavailable to the public until now, these shoes have a canvas upper and a rubber sole with the EVH logo on the bottom.”

If the idea of majoring in art didn’t help, this could? Lesley Arfin penned a nice little entry on MissBehave titled How To Get Laid (If You’re a Dude). In short, it offers some courteous wisdom and explains that the key to consistent entry is surprises. One question. Isn’t paying attention usually a surprise?
Mechafushigi is a cool website whose concept goes way over my head.
“MAKA FUSHIGI” is a Japanese term often used to describe mysterious occurrences. It comes from a Sanskrit term “MAHA” meaning highness and “MAKA FUSHIGI” was originally used to express impressive phenomena in the nature that are beyond human understandings.
The MECHAFUSHIGI is a stock of visual representations of the natural phenomena or people’s work reflecting them throughout the web. I hope these resources will help to understand mechanisms of “MAKA FUSHIGI” and to inspire good design.

For a while now, I have been working on designing a pair of Vans to order on the website. But, the experience was…. let’s say it was not so good. Until now. Vans has fixed the store and the custom shop. Check it out now and order your custom Vans. Here’s my current favorite that I am designing, although the problem I have is that I can never commit to the final shoe. I keep mixing it up. If you take a stab at designing your custom’s, send us a screen grab,and we will post for all to see your style.

This new series of paintings for his show at Don’t Come in Melbourne is really fresh. The girl sitting down by them (after the jump), ain’t half bad either.
