Step 1: Cut a hole in the box
Step 2: Put your chick in that box
Step 3: Open the box….or not.
Mountain Dew skateboarder, Paul Rodriguez and Dan Pendleton inspired 35 skate shops across the country to partner with an artist and design a can for Mountain Dew. Concepts skate shop in Cambridge, MA was chosen as one of five skate shops in the Northeast.
Only one can will be chosen for nationwide distribution. Please visit GreenLabelArt.com to cast your vote. Regional voting ends September 9th at 3PM. Thanks for all the support!
Another underground transmission has surfaced on the internet from Commander Skully, leader PILOT (the Preservation of Illicit, Ludicrous, and Obscene Treachery). This time CS is attempting to elicit the advice of Pilot co-creator Bill Concanon.
Then we take a still photo of him and hand it over to graphic designer Matt Arnold. With his mad photoshop skills, he gives the still clay photo more of a “bone look”
Next media schmoe, me (Dennis Carroll) will take 10-15 minutes and write a script then do the voice over. Then I’ll animate the facial and body movements using a series of programs including Adobe After Effects and Premier Pro. Depending on the script, I may jump on google images and grab a couple props, characters, whatever. Sometimes Skully seeks the assistance of one of his henchmen, the deadly Pilot Logo Attack Ninja’s. These guys are just the Pilot logo and we do a page curl effect on the corners. Sometimes we add a mouth for more expressiveness.
That’s pretty much it. New video coming soon. Until then, “Viva La Bamba!”
Some of us are growing rally beards for the winter… who will shave first? Stay tuned for weekly updates!
Today marks the beginning of a new segment here at Pilot where we allow you, our devoted fan….um….fans, to be heard. We call it “WeMail”. We take your email and put it on our BLOG. Send us your comments, questions, drawings, ideas, and if they don’t suck, we’ll share it with the world. Thus giving you your 5 minutes of fame. You can now die a happy being.
Our first WeMail belongs to Kenneth Beuther of Colon Ohio. He writes…..
I’m a designer/inventor from a small town in Ohio. I’ve been at it for 30 years now and I’ve finally come up with something I think could really make an impact on a multi-billion-dollar industry, the pet supply industry. I call it the Kitty Porter 3000 or KP3000. I was hoping i could show you the detailed sketches and hire you to design some really professional looking packaging for it.
Figure 1 shows the basic design of the KP3000. Lightweight carbonfibre material and self-winding screws make it convenient to get your pet in and transport it around in style!
Figure 2 shows the KP3000 in full use. Pets on the go! Also works on small dogs.
So thats my idea. I really think I’m on to something. I look forward to speaking with you.
Sorry I am not much of an artist. Thanks, Ken
Ken. Your not much of a human being either you disgusting son of a bitch. Seriously people, you’re going to have to really step it up if you want to get on this BLOG. We didnt have much choice here with Ken. He’s the only dude to ever email us. But if this was a game show, we’d hear a “wonk, wonk, wonk” and a massive hook would come out of nowhere, impale this email, and drag it screaming off the side of the stage.
Keep those email(s) coming and maybe you could be the next Pilot WeMail star!!
