theres no lack of love for prior projects...commercial work funds the fun toy stuff. without any money how the hell do you think hes gonna fix anything? thunderdog doesnt have any fancy investors. and i know for a fact that his fans and customers are paramount in his mind and is working toward fixing it all.

Scion has put their money behind some wonderful stuff, like the Friends With You Skywalkers parade, and Tris is undeniably a hugely talented guy, but with Tmutt's recent problems, this sort of press isn't particularly helpful (from the NY Times):

"The agency spent six months last year escorting a graffiti artist, Tristan Eaton, around New York, Los Angeles and other cities to talk to Scion owners about their lifestyles. Based on those conversations, Mr. Eaton designed the symbols."

Six months?

But you've gotta admit...they are hiring a lot of genuine talent and giving them a lot of creative control.

Having spent a fair bit of time in the corporate wasteland, that's pretty damn rare.

don't tell me, if someone offered you a wheel-barrel full of cash to be escorted around the country for six months to background a project you'd refuse?

i say more power to ya' if you score a deal like this!

would you rather Ford or Chevy do it?

or better yet, have every car company forget about a generation and make bland, style-less cars that don't appeal to anyone under the age of retirement?



i'd much rather have a car company push for a generation that get old and stale (insert any American car company).

NONE, Scion has done artist collabos with over 300 artists in the past 5 yrs and not 1, not 1 artist was givin a car. Shows how much they care about the demographic their aiming to impress. Lets be honest, their cars dont cost that much to make, whole sale, 5-6 k tops?? Ive done design jobs for more then that.

car design is about good car design, i drive a honda cuz i like it, not because they have comercials with demons and cars that turn into lizards with barb wie shootin at my eyes.

and since you wanna drag things out, I lost all intergrity 4 triston from doing this job that i givin him for leaving kidrobot and becoming independent

Ok to the above message. I have own'd a scion xB for the past 3 yrs. I love my car, and the company. I have been invited to shows, concerts, art gallery's ect. Alot of the artist who scion does do stuff with already owns a car from them. I know a bunch of artist who have done thier shows, magazines, ect. I just got invited by Scion to set up my art work at a Northeast regional event in 2 weeks. This is a nice car show where, just cause I own a scion I will get to show off my work. I love alot of what they as a company do for the people who buy thier cars.

"bamboozled"

ROFL!


back ON-topic:
knowing what Corp Honda thinks of the younger demographic, I applaud Toyota for launching a whole car line, using quirky Japanese K-car style for the states.

Honda could have done the same thing years ago w/ the Life and Dunk, but they chose to bloat their US models to the size of small land yachts, while pissing on every aftermarket company that catered to younger drivers.

and this is coming form a HUGE long time Honda fan (been driving/owning one since 1995 - currently 5 in the stable).

i drive them cus their reliable and can be fun to drive with a few simple modifications...not cus the CEO of HNA is buying me dinner.
