GREAT Print Ads for Dragon Noodle Company

When the Dragon Noodle Shop in Vegas needed a a new eye-catching campaign, the LA-based company David & Goliath came to the rescue. These prints play up the classic cliches found in most Chinese restaurant ads and definitely catch MY eye! Great stuff.

A Drawing a Day

Studio 1482 has started One Drawing a Day, where you can find daily doodles from the desks to the internet. What a fun project! I’ll find pages and pages of thumbnails and strange sketches strewn all over my desk, but I’m not sure that they are worthy of posting. Sometimes I don’t even remember what they were for! That’s the best… Studio 1482 has some nice work on their site too. Happy doodling!
