The Gundam Base in Yongsan I’Park got a new statue to replace the PG Unicorn display. I was a little disappointed with the Build Fighters Try anime, but I do think the Try Burning is a pretty classic design.
These American blend cigarettes are manufactured from a blend of the finest tobaccos obtainable. Guaranteed to be free from any deleterious flavoring.
My latest painting is a portrait of Boston cigarettes by Amer Tupakka from the late 1950′s, on a background based on Aini Vaari’s classic design Coronna launched in 1958 for Finlayson. This piece aims to create visual parallels between two designs that are both beautiful nostalgic and visual in their own rights.
One might question why I chose to depict these two together: Vaari’s fabric design is a timeless icon where Boston is just fags. I understand a pack of cigarettes is an unlikely candidate for a design classic - they are, by nature, meant to be disposed after use, as this particular pack was fifty-some years ago. (Only to be found by my dad.) And of course, cigarettes, as we all very well know, are terrible for our health. BUT should a beautiful design be appreciated less just because it is evil? Can a design, one little pack made of thin paper and foil, even be evil in any way?
I am fascinated by products like Boston because they are/were disposable. Designs and products change, re-brand and become obsolete but they all leave something behind: Just the other day I showed this pack to my mom’s partner and he, with a great big smile, said “This is exactly what me and the lads used to smoke when I was wee and still learning how to smoke!”
