My Brainchild, My Big Idea

After the successful launch of the Purple Hunt and my artwork that got printed on a MacBook Air and the Purple Book, I thought that the PurpleScape was just a one-time deal for me. Little did I know that it was my ticket to a bigger project that Yahoo! had in store for us.

Two weeks before the Purple Hunt finale, I was asked to draw two new artworks that would build upon my PurpleScape submission. Knowing my limitations and the task at hand: to produce two high-quality artworks in two weeks, I still took the challenge. I got so excited that I started to draw my ideas in ink right away. Midway through the 1st artwork, I found out that a real Big Idea Chair exists. Good thing I wasn't finished with the central piece yet and avoided redrawing everything from scratch.

The Big Idea Chair by the way, is a life-sized throne and a coveted award that recognizes original thinking, creative solutions and big ideas. Those who receive it must have made compelling solutions and inspired others to pursue with the same standards. It's a rare opportunity for me and a privilege to be drawing for the prestigious award and sharing my ideas with other remarkable creatives from all over the world. So without further ado, my ideas:

In the beginning, it was just a concept. When the period of gestation was over, it gave birth to My Brainchild.

Maybe one dude can change a light bulb. But when you soar the light, the more people will feel the light. Ideas should aim to inspire but it should also know how to.

These artworks will be part of the Big Idea Chair book, which is to be presented to a selected audience of top notch advertising and design gurus of the world. I am very proud to be part of this. Let me share with you the delightful details. Enjoy!

  11. Bjornik! Thank God you are here! I am so delighted to see you. I was wondering if I had to send a posse of friends to make sure you are okay! Please avoid the filthy waters. Do not play in the flood waters! :)
