According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 6.8 million American adults, or about 3.1 percent of people age 18 and over, have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Well, now, thanks to a brand new website from Doodlesplatter’s very own design dream team, The Neon Hive, there will be a few less anxious people around town. The world’s most famous neurotic duo, Anxieteam, have a freshly centralized hub serving all the latest band-related news, music and videos. Consider it virtual Valium. If you fell out with society, join the Anxieteam here.
In 2004, Jon had a guest spot on Andrew Bell’s Creatures In My Head blog. While most of the other guest artists took a more “traditional” creature approach, Jon gave us the “You Have No More Money…or Friends” monster.
Andrew An anonymous user (see Andrew’s comment below) tagged it with, among other things, “abstract,” “color,” and “lips”. The original post is here.
Founded in 2005 by an ever-growing group of young designers and vagabonds eager to collect and share the best design work they came across, FormFiftyFive is an international, interactive showcase of creative work.
Here’s a busy background Jon did for Accept & Proceed. Accept & Proceed is a design and art direction facility, providing print and interactive design for a wide range of sectors including the music, fashion and advertising industries.
I’m going to preface this by admitting that my knowledge of Second Life is limited to an article I read in Wired. My attitude towards it could be summarized with: “That’s actually pretty neat, but I should probably focus on my First Life.” However, it may be time to give Second Life a second chance.
Cris Rose blew my mind with this one. Cris built a quarter square mile of Second Life virtual art galleries (with a solid chunk of real estate devoted to Jon Burgerman) before third-party funding unfortunately fell through. Those are actual Burgermenos and canvases by Jon that Cris rendered in Second Life. I think I speak for all of us when I say that this project has legs; let’s see it rise again! I’m in awe of this: it presents the possibility for people to see real life art regardless of their physical location. And my vision is poor, but is that a Tado in the corner…?!
Keep up with Cris by following his antics on twitter here. A bit more about Second Life and lots more images (courtesy and copyright Cris) follow.
Second Life is a free 3D virtual world imagined and created by its Residents. Once installed, you will be able to walk, “teleport” or even fly to thousands of exciting 3D locations. You can also use voice and text chat to communicate with other real people from around the world.
I’ve known about this for a little while, but had to keep it secret. Jon just cut the virtual red ribbon and announced it himself, so the word is out. Burgerplex is open for business! Toys, books, prints and stuff to cover your laptop and iPhone are currently available. In the future, Burgerplex will offer indie items made by Jon. Support and buy direct! Here’s a snippet from Burgerplex:
For years Jon Burgerman has been lining the pockets of some of the world’s biggest brands with his collaborations and embellishments of their products, so he thought he’d start his own and call it burger. Now burgerplex.com is the first totally Jon controlled website that takes the ideas from his oddly shaped head and turns them into lovely products for you to buy.
Everything is made from the finest materials including gorilla hands, panda fur and breath from the last golden tamarind monkey left in the wild. You can buy in the confidence that your purchase really has an impact!
When we can drag Jon away from his Wii / toast / tea / slippers / bed / pictures of monkeys we will be adding new products and designs and our promise is to make sure we deliver them quickly and make sure you love the burger brand forever.
Not all takeovers are hostile. In fact, this one’s more of a makeover than a takeover. This is the second Doodlesplatter-documented incident of a website getting the Jon Burgerman effect: the first was back in 2007 for Stuff and Nonsense. Times and tech have changed, and Media Molecule now gets the royal, full technicolor treatment. In advance of the June 25th release of Jon’s LittleBigPlanet sticker pack, the Media Molecule site is now covered in doodles. There will be 72 doodles in all–available to purchase as graffiti and decor for your LittleBigPlanet. This is definitely some Matrix-style business: once you’re done covering your walls, gadgets and cars with physical Jon Burgerman stickers, you can start bombing the virtual realm. Media Molecule is working with other artists and further makeovers are sure to follow, so click below for a preserved image of LittleBurgerPlanet.
In 2007, Jon did an illustrative takeover of Andy Clarke’s Stuff and Nonsense website. Wrote Andy: “To my complete and utter amazement, Jon Burgerman has agreed to create something truly, but unsurprisingly unique for this site. In doing so he has made me realise just how different a feel a new illustration can create, even when nothing else on a page changes.” The Jon Burgerman edition can be seen here.
Stuff and Nonsense began developing web sites for clients from their small studio in North Wales in 1998. They are now well-known nationally and internationally for creating strong designs and highly accessible web sites.
