Moleskine Covers

This article was posted by Dan Funderburgh 5 years, 9 months, 2 days, 2 hours, 43 minutes ago.

About a year ago, RazaUno introduced me to this company selling engraved notebooks and laptops. I was really psyched with the custom Moleskine notebooks, but it turns out that it’s not so responsible environmentally and that too much breathing the lasered PVC Moleskine covers can give you every kind of cancer at once. The solution was that they started making these terrific leather book covers that are pretty and tactile and not nearly as caustic. I made a couple designs, several more are on www.engraveyourbook.com.

Voodoo Funk

This article was posted by Dan Funderburgh 5 years, 9 months, 3 days, 7 hours, 38 minutes ago.

I thought I’d interrupt my regular broadcast of non-stop self promotion with a important message of motherland funk brilliance from WFMU. Voodoo Funk is a blog and radio show featuring only the best dusty-ass 45’s of African pop music from the 1970’s. It’s cold and shitty outside and this is remarkable. Podcast over here.

I made a new website with a mess of wallpapers and art on it. People that know me may remember that I’ve been promising a new site for at least a year now. Apologies to all. You can deduct one full letter grade from my final score. www.danfunderburgh.com

January 20 2009

Several million of my friends and I went to Washington DC tuesday. It was amazing to be there, but I’m pretty sure it would have been amazing to watch it on TV in a diner or pretty much anywhere. It was a really good day.

Tintin is 80

This article was posted by Dan Funderburgh 5 years, 9 months, 2 weeks, 5 days, 23 hours, 56 minutes ago.

Belgium’s international icon of investigative journalism is 80 Years old. These books were early influences on me both for Hergé‘s amazing use of flat color and his eye for capturing the detail in exotic environments. His depictions of various ethnicities appear painfully naive by today’s standards, but Hergé definitely made an effort to play down the stereotypes towards the end of his career. I encourage anyone uninitiated to take a look before Tintin goes all Hollywood.

THEME Magazine

Theme is a bi-monthly lifestyle magazine that focuses on stories about contemporary Asian art and culture. It’s run by good people in Brooklyn and totally worth a read. I did an illustration for this month’s ‘Eureka’ issue and it looks like this. Thanks, John.

Times Special Edition

This article was posted by Dan Funderburgh 5 years, 11 months, 2 weeks, 5 days, 1 hour, 37 minutes ago.

If you walked the streets of Manhattan today you may have noticed people handing out free copies of The New York Times Special Edition. After being pleasantly surprised by the price, readers of the NYT SE were most likely then incredibly surprised by the headline reading IRAQ WAR ENDS. Further reading revealed that the US Patriot Act was repealed by congress, ExxonMobile and ChevronTexaco were nationalized to fund climate change efforts, Bush was indicted for high treason, bike lanes are replacing car traffic on every other avenue and every 5th cross street, and the date is July 4th, 2009 .

The bootleg dream-world Times was perfect in every way and after an amazing election, gave New Yorkers 100 additional reminders of what audacious idealism could possibly achieve. This act of guerilla hope-mongering was perpetrated by the Yes Men - a cabal of brilliant agit-prop art pranksters best known for making complete fools of WTO types as recorded in their eponymous documentary. Read the NYT SE online.

You know the deal. Go with a friend. Bring a book. Don’t go home until you push a button or pull a lever. Meet me at my place later and bring fireworks.
