Perhaps it’s pretentious to call your event the “most important art show in the United States,” but that’s exactly what Art Basel considers itself. The event will have an exclusive selection of more than 220 leading art galleries from USA, Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Asia, exhibiting 20th and 21st century artworks by more than 2,000 artists. Expect talks, panels, galleries, installations, international magazines, and practically everything one can think of related to arts!
No, that’s not a typo. Plasticgod‘s newest rendering of a human’s film timeline finds itself focused on none other than Johnny Depp himself in Deppictions. An absolute must-have for every Johnny Depp fan who wants to follow his cute cartoon figure from Platoon through Sweeney Todd.
Calling all female designers!! Want to get your design printed on a t-shirt and receive a bunch of free schwag from Snowboard Connection? Now’s your chance. Check out the details above.

Of Montreal is a band that has seen success as the result of good music (arguable), but also good marketing (possibly also arguable, but not as much).
First, their music video for “Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games,” featuring cutsy-wootsy pop art animation, garnered wide attention from the web nerds. Then, the same song was used, slightly altered, for a obnoxious yet hypnotic Outback Steakhouse commercial.
And now comes of Montreal’s wonderful new shenanigan for their new album, Skeletal Lamping… Blik Surface Graphics inspired by the album artwork!!
A true of Montreal fan benefits hugely from this offer, as purchasing one $40 set also gives a code to download the whole album digitally. So, after doing the math, if each song is purchased at $0.99 apiece digitally and there are 15 songs, the graphics pretty much only cost $25. Which is not bad at all, especially when one considers that these are these are extremely intricate packages with many pieces.
The David Barnes package (click here to view) has 105 movable and reusable pieces, and the Gemini Tactics package (click here to view has 55 movable and reusable pieces.
Compare that to something like this Lacy Sunday package by Jan Habraken, which only comes with 4 colors in three packages, and you REALLY get an idea of what a good deal this is. If you’re an of Montreal fan.
Or maybe you just like their graphics and want to sell the code for the album download.
