Weak Sauce About Nothing

Salsa débil sobre nada!

Flash Artist Feature: Joel Veitch

For the unsavvy, this is the British guy who runs www.rathergood.com and is a member of the B3ta group. He is the mind behind the sponge monkey ads that Quiznos used to run. “We love the suuuuubs. . .”


Kind of a creepy commercial

Joel’s imagry tends to be pretty rough and it gives it that “cut out of a magazine and pasted onto construction paper” feel. Early on in his work the mouths of his subjects wouldn’t move in sync with the words they were supposed to be saying, he would opt to just have the mouths opening and closing rapidly or slowly depending on the speed of the audio. Rather than looking incomplete or lazy, it actually gives his work another level of creepiness. Love or hate the subjects, or his Flash work, he’s right up there when it comes to obscurity, imagination, and musical talent. My favorite peice is “seepage” baby seals, can you feel it?

Cherry Blossoms

All I can really say about this art project is Wow.  What an amazing concept, and an amazing way to bring to light the real tragedy of the war in Iraq.  This is the kind of thing that art should do.  It should wake you up to the world around you and really shake up how you think about things.

 Bravo.
