Ramayana: Divine Loophole

Artist and veteran Pixar animator Sanjay Patel lends a lush, whimsical illustration style and lighthearted voice to one of Hindu mythology’s best-loved and most enduring tales. Teeming with powerful deities, love-struck monsters, flying monkey gods, magic weapons, demon armies, and divine love, Ramayana tells the story of Rama, a god-turned-prince, and his quest to rescue his wife Sita after she is kidnapped by a demon king. This illustrated tale features over 100 colorful full-spread illustrations, a detailed pictorial glossary of the cast of characters who make up the epic tale, and sketches of the work in progress. From princesses in peril to gripping battles, scheming royals, and hordes of bloodthirsty demons, Ramayana is the ultimate adventure story presented with an unforgettably modern touch.

(video) INSPIRATION – Conan O’Brien American Express Commercial

What does this have to do with vector art? Nada. But we thought that you would enjoy a laugh today.

I think that the way that NBC handled the whole situation was a big mistake. Not just ethically but strategically. Conan (like it or not) represents a generation that is quite simply out of Jay Leno’s grasp.

Instead of focusing entirely on the ratings numbers, they should have moved Leno out to pasture and used Conan’s internet momentum to build a success instead of starting from scratch. It was a bad move because it showed the world that NBC has got one foot in the past while modern comedy media marches on.

Conan O’Brien premiers his new show tonight on TBS and like a red haired phoenix from the ashes, so too shall this 7 foot tall Irishman rise. Up yours Leno.

Check out this charming spot for American Express – a brand that is hitching it’s wagon early.

Toronto, Canada

Fashion Cares is one of the most incredible HIV/AIDS fund raisers in North America. Their impact on the fight against this terrible disease has been known for over 20 years.Since 1987, Fashion Cares has raised nearly $10 million dollars for the AIDS Committee of Toronto. As this annual event enters its third decade, expect plenty of new fashion, new faces and a fascinating new location. With more drama, more fabulous fashion and even more exceptional entertainment, this year’s gala promises to be bigger and better than ever.

“Canada’s largest AIDS fundraiser…has simply become one extraordinary event, imagine Halloween, a high school prom and New Year’s Eve all rolled into one!”

Toronto Star

“Fashion Cares has evolved way beyond a fashion show — it’s more like an entertainment spectacle.”

Eye Weekly


Every year a new theme is selected (This year is PEEP). 2005’s theme was Hollywood Bollywood.This is an ad that ran in the show’s program. It tastefully merges the AIDS ribbon with a compassionate image of an Indian female.The quote in the ad reads:

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world”- Mahatma Ghandi

An appropriate sentiment that is even more true today.
