I don't think that drawing will be incorporated into their current ad campaign...it's ironic that only people with hummers will be able to drive through water, making the whole global warming thing a selling point.

That was awful, Scraps.  Thank god I've made myself a nice curry for supper; that will take away some of the pain.

Sorry Sarah...feel better.  But yeah, unbelievable.  Hummer drivers are a strange breed.  People in big SUVs, you know, bad enough, but Hummer drivers... they're just creepy.

I've had occasion to drive an H3 on a few occasions. I think one important element of their suckiness that is overlooked 99% of the time is what a profoundly unpleasant experience they are to drive, on top of everything else. Visibility is close to zero, it handles like a firetruck towing another firetruck, and since it’s designed all “military chic”, nothing on the inside is ergonomic or user-friendly at all – everything is hard, oversized, difficult to reach, boxy, and with sharp corners everywhere. It’s a really, really terrible vehicle.
I'm warning you with peace and love.

a little thing I did for a "Art in the Public Space" class. It was intended to go above men's urinals. I stuck a couple up in some bars, but couldn't figure a way to open up the glass on the ad container.

I think I was reading a bit too much Adbusters around this time.

By "too much" you mean "just enough", right?

Hey, I like Adbusters... 

When you work amongst so many advertising folks, Adbusters is a nice periodical to leave on the coffee table.
