Truckhead – Don’t you want to be my baby?

Swimming in the great idea pool of the collective unconscious, it can be funny the things that will float by you on the way to the top. I was more that a little confused and surprised this weekend to come across a comic strip called Truckhead in the latest Nickelodeon Magazine at my local...

Irony takes it in the back

Irony takes it in the back

Read that however you like… I’ve been assaulted lately by clueless advertising. Bad concept, execution and placement. First of all this has been a lesson to carry a camera at all times. Even while driving. And at whatever personal risk. It is because I did not follow this cardinal...
