Inspired By Jessica Rabbit

No really ... inspired by Jessica Rabbit, I didn't make this title up, it's true.

"This is Kristina Rei. She’s a 22-year old nail technician in St. Petersburg, Russia, and she’s had over 100 lip-enhancing injections since she was 17. While some people’s motivation for getting cosmetic surgery can be extremely complex and personal, Rei sums up hers quite succinctly as quoted by The Sun: ”I loved Jessica Rabbit’s huge lips. She was my idea of the perfect woman.”"

Nice one!

Beneva Foundation in Romania raised awareness of the impact of violence against women recently, using bouquets of flowers and baseball bats.

Case study:



White Ribbon Day, marked in Australia on November 25, calls on men to swear, no matter what their background. “I swear never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.”

Too nice for my taste. Does this campaign really reach the target? Really reach the people that are abusing females?

Bicycle Animation

Kate Beveridge about her bicycle animation.

“This is a piece created to question whether it was possible to film animation in realtime. Part of my CSM 3rd year dissertation project I was looking at proto animation (really early basic animation) in contemporary design. I’ve taken a lot of influence from other contemporary designers who are using these techniques to explore the way we look at animation and how its made.”

John Heartfield Anti Nazi Photomontages

Anti Nazi Photomontages from the 1930s by John Heartfield. ‘John Heartfield (1891–1968) is the anglicized name of the German photomontage artist Helmut Herzfeld. Heartfield developed photomontage into a form of political and artistic expression. His photomontages satirising Adolf Hitler and the Nazis often subverted Nazi symbols such as the swastika in order to undermine their propaganda message.’ - Wikipedia
