Cadbury's Gorilla vs Wonderbra

You decide!


Campari's story continues through the pages of the 2008 edition of the Campari Calendar: the style changes and becomes pure fantasy and fairy tales take life as never before. Campari Tales, the concept for the year 2008, is an adult, glamorous and glossy story book where Eva Mendes' alluring sensuality is the absolute protagonist and her enchanting beauty is captured by Marino Parisotto's lens.

Yue Minjun

The art of Yue Minjun is based on his own smile as the basic image for his painting and sculpture. This image has become a kind of permanent icon through repeated use over the last ten years. For the Chinese, an icon is an integral symbol in their minds, as in the saying "the kingdom cannot do without a king for a single day". Why is it so? This is because in the psychology of the Chinese, there is the habit of passively accepting icons and the mentality of letting themselves be suppressed by despots and controlled by heroes. They have the common characteristic of showing blind loyalty under great power and pressure. The people throughout the country during the Mao era therefore were all united in their thinking, conduct and language, because "we will triumph only when we all march to the same tune". In other words Mao Zedong applied the approach of military operation to order the daily lives of the people during peacetime.

2008 Nerdcore™ calendar.

In the great lineage of comic books, no one has explored heroes and villains quite like Nerdcore™. In this 12-month, 2008 calendar, heroines and their evil counterparts square off in quite revealing ways — a fully nude firestarter igniting her surroundings, a “super” lass undresses after a hard day’s night of battling bad guys, and a katana-wielding vixen, wearing a headband and not much else, shows a few ninjas who’s the real boss is. These are the powered-up ladies that watch over downtown Los Angeles from rooftops and can turn invisible with the snap of a finger. They are the heroes and villains of the 2008 Nerdcore™ calendar.

Jill Greenberg

Jill Greenberg was tagged The Manipulator in the early '90s when she became known for transforming photos into surreal portraits by tweaking colors, cutting and pasting and otherwise distorting images. The work she created at the beginning of her career took advantage of Photoshop before it was a household name and became iconic of the collaged, multi-colored look of the time, forming the groundwork for the hyper-real work that's now her trademark.

Debli Project

Debli which means 'Recycle and Re-create' is an exhibition of animal
inspired art and media. Over 180 artists will 'recycle' objet d'arts...
and create. Debli Project is the fantastic sum of the artists' creative
visions as all were invited to take the same recycled objects and use
their wildly imaginative minds and impressive artistic skills and
CREATE to make a difference. This revolutionary art tour is not only
affirming Tom Tor's ongoing commitment to supporting independent
artistic expression, but the creative agency, with offices in L.A. and
Tokyo, has also manifested the possibility of designing to make a
difference through this exhibition.
