Reportedly produced on a budget ranging at USD $12-$13 million or slightly higher, Yona Yona Penguin comes in at a few obvious pegs lower than computer animated flicks typically emerging from western territories with greater resources at their disposal.
I just know that the animated CG animated movie was already released in Japan December 2009. Actaully we have worked a little bitt on this project at the very beginning. [via] [previous post]

I feel very sad and sorry about that, and I hope HK office can still going well, I have lots of friends are still working there, if imagi closed down, they are not only going to lose the job, but also the "career". I don't really want that happen. I don't want to say anything bad more about that.... I better shut up and let this illustration express what my feeling...

Meggs’ work references the nostalgia of childhood heroes and villains, exploring the notion of ‘duality’ and an on-going question of morals, rights and authorities. Reflecting on personal experience Meggs produces energetic depictions of heroes, villains, and subverted collages of pop culture symbology. You can check more his work on his website/blog, in addition, you’ll find plenty more work on his Flickr
Stephanie Metz is a sculptor whose innovative work in felted wool has garnered international attention. Her sculpture, focused on the relationship between humans and the natural world, fuses sharp wit, thoughtful observation, and careful craftsmanship in an unusual material to blur the line between art and science, natural and unnatural, organic and man-made.
Through sculpture and installation, Julie Levesque has been building a body of work that is primarily concerned with motion and the fluid transformation of energy into inanimate objects. The imprint of this emotion distorts their shapes creating a narrative of the essence of the people who have had contact with them. Slumped, eroded or enlarged, emotion/energy is made visible in ways that never physically show in the body but reside there nonetheless. Working almost exclusively in white, she creates tension and contradiction by draining the color out of these energized objects.

A five minute retrospective of the campaigns produced by the TAC over the last 20 years has been compiled. The montage features iconic scenes and images from commercials that have helped change they way we drive, all edited to the moving song Everybody Hurts by REM.
This campaign is a chance to revisit some of the images that have been engraved on our memories, remember the many thousands of people who have been affected by road trauma and remind us all that for everyones sake; please, drive safely.

I think these clips of accident can really REMIND us! I was scared when watch the middle part of clips...
