Artist’s Work Paints a Beautiful Picture

Animations

Tyrus Wong, a 102-year-old artist’s work influenced the visual direction of Bambi in 1941.

An exhibition at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco will be held to celebrate Wong’s work.

According to the Disney Museum site, the drawings felt different from what is commonly known for Disney animation and this is what caught Walt Disney’s eye.

Making Handmade Art, Literally

Animations

Alex Solis, a talented artist from Chicago, had an idea to incorporate his hands into his imaginative illustrations.

This creative idea incorporates something as basic as an unfinished illustration and brings it to life with interactive actions.

These creations are a form of live art that requires Solis’ imagination and creativity to first draw the illustrations and then to complete the artwork with the use of his hands.

Redefining the Golden Arches

Product Innovation, package design

McDonald’s in Japan has created a trio of luxury burgers in the ‘Quarter Pounder Jewelry’ series. Each of the burgers cost $10 that is, without making it a meal. Pineapple, bacon, Monterey jack cheese, black truffle sauce, chorizo and avocado are some of the quality ingredients that are used to create these luxury burgers.

However, McDonald’s not only upgraded their food, they also upgraded their packaging. The fast food giant swapped their regular paper bag for a minimalist, white-glossy bag. On the front are the golden arches that are made of gold leaf to add to the indulgence of the experience.

In addition, each burger is wrapped in gold foil with a gold-colored paper sleeve and placed in a glossy white paper box that is reminiscent of a luxury-watch-box.

Teapots may be a thing of the past with this sleek, new invention.

As opposed to old-fashion teapots, the “Quattro” which was designed by Snezana Jeremic, allows the person to pour the tea with a simple tip.

This device also can be inverted and used as a handle which makes it portable.
