Animal Logo Wednesday - Moose

I havent done one this week, so here's one I did about 3 years ago. It's for a pool cleaning service that naturally chose a moose to represent the quality of their work.

You know how women always moan about things? Don't worry, human men. I just read an article about how women moose manipulate their dudes with moans, too.

Reservations of the trailer of the Movie of the Rise of the Planet of the Apes

This movie looks like I would really like it. I have no great love for the previous Ape movies, but I like the idea of apes going crazy and attacking humans.

The trailer had me until I saw the ape. It looks like this

It's supposed to be a chimp, right? An actual monkey? I admit I know very little about this film, but I know how monkeys look? They don't have a very visible sclera (the white part). They have eyes like this

So, does anyone else think an ape with shifty human eyes looks retarded? Or am I super sensitive to how eyes look. I mean, if they can get every hair in there and not looking like a video game...didn't they do research into how the eyes look? Wouldnt this

getting all smart and taking over the world look better than this?

Oooh....he's looking at me with human eyes. So ominous.

SFX artists,'s time you address this issue and stop making apes look like dudes with an ape mask on.

And don't tell me it wont look real, or the ape wouldn't be able to convey emotions. I cant hear you anyway. Kong had gorilla eyes and he was still able to convey emotion and danger and realism.

Maybe I'll feel stupid after I actually see the movie. Maybe they explain that the Alzheimers-fixing serum alters their eyes, and also gives them larynges, so they eventually learn to speak english like they do in the other Ape movies. they all learn english? What about the apes in china? Do they learn chinese? And how is there a million apes in one city....are there that many zoos? Uh I'm starting to have all sorts of qualms...I hope they resolve these pre-issues. Maybe I'll love this movie. Maybe this will happen.

Return of the Clydesdale

So, the people that wanted the horse on the bike came back, wanting more comps. I was happy to oblige, although it took so much time, I'm unable to provide Facebook Friend Thursday enjoyment.

Animal Logo Tuesday - Dolphin

Though the exact methods used to achieve this are not known, dolphins can tolerate and recover from extreme injuries, such as shark bites. The healing process is rapid and even very deep wounds do not cause dolphins to hemorrhage to death. Furthermore, even gaping wounds restore in such a way that the animal's body contour is restored, and infection of such large wounds seems rare. In this way they are similar to Wolverine. or Paul.
