the yin and yang of old west mythologies

I love the entire group show “Cowboys & Indians” that just ended at The R&R Gallery in L.A., but the above piece stands out, making a particularly stark statement with deceptively simple symbols.

Someone already bought the 6′x6′ untitled diptych by CW for two grand. Would it be insulting to put such a great piece of art on a shirt? Pretty please? Such art you wear would go like hotcakes, I tell ya. Hotcakes.

the little dude strikes again

Last month, our Alupa Creative logo graced the front page of CSShunt’s design inspiration gallery, and now the little dude in the upper-left corner has struck again.

We are honored to again kick our way into another gallery. Find our logo featured at LogoMoose. The little dude would be ever so grateful if you wanted to rate us five bright, shining stars!

Brand identity is central everything that we do for our beloved clients. Thus, it is nice to see our logo, the tiny-but-powerful dude attacking his work with Pollock-like gusto, on the front page of CSShunt’s design inspiration gallery.

If he could tear himself away from that furious kick, the Alupa Creative guy would probably give a humble bow.

Things have been quiet on the blog, but only because they’ve been busy in the cyberspace office. We have new projects coming, new employees to announce and all kinds of jazz that we’re currently stockpiling for release. Be excited. Be very, very excited. – AC

Lawrence Ultimate Frisbee Shirt Fall League 2010

This year’s Lawrence Ultimate Summer League shirt went over so well that we decided to make another, slightly different version of the same design for Lawrence Ultimate Fall League, complete with it’s own particular level of inclement weather indication. Fall is a crazy time in Kansas.

Alupa Downloads featured

Posted By Alupa Creative

The download section of our site hasn’t been updated recently due to an over-abundance of things to do outside of the realm of shameless self-promotion. However, it seems that the downloads are still kicking up web traffic, via hdw.eweb4.com/, an online desktop download location. Seems that some of the first of our desktop downloads made the list, but a few of our favorites were missing, so we’re scratching our heads.

both morbid and a tad bit o.c.d.

Posted By Jaime Gassmann

Here at AC we’re in favor of obsessions. A life without passion is a life half-lived.

So huzzah for the dedication of The Bodycounters, who catalog the death counts of most of your favorite flicks following a strict set of self-imposed rules such as, “Dream sequences do NOT count, but flashbacks DO.”

The entries range from informative to richly descriptive. For instance, nouveau cult film Zombie Strippers killed off 43 people and a fly — pretty straightforward. However, the report for the spoof Kung Pow: Enter The Fist chronicles an intriguing hodgepodge of deaths: “43 people, a dog, 2 moths, a big toe, a stomach plug and one French alien UFO.”

Note well the 007 films, which specify how many of James Bond’s love interests get whacked, and also Samuel L. Jackson’s movies, which include a count of the number of times he utters his famed compound curse word.

They count, so you don’t have to … though now you may be inspired to play along at home.

this is your brain on gehry

Posted By Jaime Gassmann

Three years and 80 million dollars later, the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health is finally finished. Frank Gehry‘s design looks like more of the same from the octogenarian architect, until you consider the purpose of the Las Vegas building. Gehry’s signature unfurling (or perhaps furling, who am I to assume) metal facades and cockeyed Dr. Seussian windows befit a hospital for the study and treatment of wonky noggins. His style matches the project perfectly.

If you would like to geek out more on this fine specimen of a building, see this review in the Los Angeles Times.
