Call Of Duty mural by Dave Crosland


Umm, how inspiring must it be to walk past such an epic mural before arriving at your desk every morning!? This giant painting by illustrator Dave Crosland is now rocking in full effect on the walls where the COD games are developed.


Dave writes: Those coolest of cool kids at iam8bit have done it again! This project was under wraps for the longest time, but the cat is finally out of the bag.

Last winter, they brought me on for a monstrous project - painting a giant mural dedicated to the Call Of Duty video game series, in the offices of the game's developer, Treyarch!

The hallway mural is approximately 70ft long, with each patch of wall depicting scenes from the different installments of the world-renowned first-person shooter -- from the North African desert campaign & Allied invasion of occupied France, to the clandestine operations of The Cold War & the zombie onslaught featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops! 




Being the media-savvy gang that they are, iam8bit put together the awesome video (below), showing off the finished work. 

 See loads more pic's on Dave's blog HERE.



Video blurb: In this SECOND EPISODE, we explore the longggggg "Entrance Hallway" at Treyarch, where artist DAVE CROSLAND hand-painted a massive series of murals, one for each of the developer's Call of Duty games, including "COD2: The Big Red One," "Call of Duty 3," COD: World at War," "COD: Black Ops" and now, "Black Ops 2".

Print yourself as a toy!

 Here we see an exciting glimpse into the future - a future full of 3D printing! This is very cool for us toy geeks....imagine a mini version of yourself standing eye to eye alongside your Munny's and Dunny's on your toy shelf! Check out all this info below to get a idea of what's currently achievable, then begin to drool at the thought of whats to come...


The world's first 3-D printer retail store has been open for two months now. MakerBot store operator Jason Schapiro has noticed that about half the people who come in are getting the chance to see a 3-D printer in real life for the first time. 

3-D printers create objects by printing successive thin layers of molten plastic, building objects up layer by layer. Certain industries, such as airplane makers, have used them to print one-of-a-kind parts for years now. Meanwhile, several companies, such as MakerBot Industries, Ultimaker and Cubify, are working to sell 3-D printers to the regular folks at home.


But to get customers to bring 3-D printers home, companies first need to explain how the devices work. With a retail store, that initial lesson is much easier to give.


There's now a photo booth where customers may sit to get four photos snapped of their faces from different angles and have those photos turned into a 3-D model of their head as per the top image.


This image above and video below showcases the worlds first 3D Photo booth. I think this is the most exciting thing of all but poses the question.... what would you dress yourself in for the shoot?

[READERS CORNER #1] Meet Agent Cortez aka Robin Wessberg

Welcome to Readers Corner, a new section on the Streets of Beige Blog! We are getting to know members of the extended SOB family by asking them a few questions and inviting them to showcase their work. This is the first entry so lets get into it! Allow us to introduce the talented, Agent Cortez aka Robin Wessberg.

SOB: Who and what are you? Where are you from?   

I’m robin, a transplanted, crusty, old skateboarder from Los Angeles who has spent the past 7 years living in Bangkok, Thailand.   These days I’ve traded in the skateboards for paintbrushes and I spend most of my time at my house/studio hanging out with my girlfriend and our short-legged dogs.


SOB: Did you like art back in school? Were you any good at it then? Did you have an inspirational teacher?

My parents always encouraged traveling and doing art.  My dad is a sculptor who does wrought iron welding for a living.  He taught me how to look at things in different ways, to see things from different angles and to be open to various musicians and artists.  And my mother is an art enthusiast who would always drag me through galleries as a child.   At the time I often hated it since I would rather be out skating but it definitely exposed me to a world I’m grateful for knowing.


SOB: Would you encourage young artists to attend University to study their art form or do you think it is best to create your own path after leaving education?  

This is a tough question because it depends on the person.   If you were a disciplined student in high school then going off to University is a good idea because it won’t be much different.  You’ll probably enjoy it because it’s a similar routine with a wider variety of classes.  But if school isn’t your thing then dealing with all the bullshit of required classes and bitter teachers’ critiques might just dissuade you from art. School seems to have a way of pushing artists in the wrong direction since the focus is on making money.  With that said,  I have found that art students seem to have excellent life drawing skills so there is that.
