Paul Smith’s Model Train Set in a briefcase

paul-smith-train-set-briefcase

It would be awesome to come to an interview, lay this briefcase on the desk and…POW!  Fun times with the conductor.

“Noch aluminium brief case with “Blumenau” model train set with a high-quality ready assembled summer landscape and pictured background. The ready-to-run route passes over the mountain and winds under the mountain tunnel system. The set includes one locomotive with two carriages supplied (colours may vary).

The “Blumenau” utilizes an integrated 9 volt battery holder and throttle controller. The high quality throttle allows you to control the trains at scale speeds and it is very efficient 37 cm, A Pre-installed adapter socket is included.”

If you’re out in LA tonight, Alëxone has a new show opening up at Carmichael Gallery.  The frenchman’s work kind of reminds me of a 21st century french George Condo.  But only kind of.  More info after the jump

Papermag’s rebranding america

geoff-mcfetridge-paper-mag

This is a very cool editorial project that is in the current issue of Paper. Founder Kim Hastreiter asked 15 luminaries (Alex Bogusky, Dan Wieden, Ivan Chermayeff, Kevin Roberts, Andy Spade, Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Peter Buchanan-Smith, Steve Powers, Chris Johanson, Jonathan Horowitz, Mike Mills, Geoff McFetridge, Bruce High Quality Foundation, Alex Kalman) to create ads that would help redefine America’s identity.

She writes…
“HOW WOULD YOU REBRAND AMERICA??? (we certainly need it desperately!) How would you make people love us again? How would you change our brand image? Our perception abroad? How could you project our future to our citizens? If America had a new ad campaign, what would it look like?”
The answers are engaging.

Reminisce Over This

Smif-n-Wessun, Bucktown, 1994

Savita Bhabhi is India’s first porn star

savita-bhahbi-cartoon-indian-porn-star

And she cums (sorry) in animated comic book form.

Details…

“This site has been inspired by my hot indian bhabhi. She is a regular Indian woman in the eyes of the world but only a few lucky people know who she really is. Savita just can’t get enough sex, and the sexual experiences she has narrated to me have always got me hot. Due to social issues (she is married) she was not willing to expose her true identity. So we decided to immortalize her in the form of Savita Bhabhi – India’s first toon porn star!”

See her site here (NSFW?) and an article here

Banks Violette at Team

banks-violette-not-yet-titled

This Thursday at Team

Not Yet Titled

Banks Violette

May 7th – June 20th 2009

Reception on Thursday May 7th at 6:00PM

Team is pleased to present an exhibition of new drawings, alongside one sculpture, by the New York-based Banks Violette. The exhibition will run from the 7th of May through the 20th of June 2009. Team Gallery is located at 83 Grand Street, between Wooster and Greene, on the ground floor.

Sculptor Banks Violette has always referred to his drawings as “film cells from the world’s slowest movie.” As with the cinema, meaning does not adhere solely to individual images but rather to their accretion over time. Viewed singly, these exquisitely rendered pictures seem miraculous transfigurations of realism, but when seen in groups they form a continuous landscape of memory, regret and melancholy.
