Daily Art Project
Hijack a familiar brand (logo, style guide) and make it appear to be for a completely different industry. For example Chevrolet is now a pasta sauce company, Walmart is now a university, AT&T is now a dairy and beef association, Starbucks is a private prison, and Applebees is a security company. This can manifest as a poster, a billboard, banner ad, product package, web animation, etc.

Masterxeon1001 makes long tutorials about using his modeling tool (HardOps) for Blender. I must be too old because he works so fast and speaks at the same time in ways that only confuse and astound me. https://youtu.be/t84RNqRMHZ4

Quality Stupidity
If you’ve never studied the stupid genius of the GI Joe PSA parodies, it is time you did. Or, just revisit them as they are timeless. https://youtu.be/z8K08AcVru0

Samurai Wisdom
Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.
