Ive decided im going to rant..

Butterflies
Fed up of seeing butterflies on anything, They really arn't that amazing and just because "each one is different and unique" doesnt mean theyre not the same! Simple.. theyre boring

Blogs
Ive said it once i'll say it again, No one cares what you had for breakfast! There are maybe one or two half decent acceptable waste of time blogs, But in general theyre just boring

Pixel Stretches
Hmm what shall I use to merge this mural in with, Shall i use my trusty blurr filter? i know :!: PIXEL STRETCH! no... just no.. stop being so half assed and do things properly! pixel stretches are boring

Gas Masks
WHAT THE FUCK is up with everyone and his dog using gas masks in graphics, they really arn't that fantastic.. Theyre just boring

Websites with too much text and not enough graphics
I dont care about who, what, when, where, why you made something, all i care about is the fact you DID make it and if its really that fantastic i'll find out about it after.. Less talk, more pictures! boring

stuck up, arogant designers
I know it probably sounds like im doing the same but believe me i'm not, Stop desperatly trying to be different, stop desperatly trying to be better than everyone else and just do what you do because you enjoy it!! otherwise your just boring

Thats all I can think of for now.. feel free to shout at me, show me examples of gas masks pixel stretches and butterflies in my own work and err.. yeh.. :D

br3n just contradicted about 90% of his own work.

Butterflys I agree. Emo kids love them.

Blogs http://www.abstractinfluence.com/forums/weblog.php?w=17

Pixel Stretches http://www.rideurban.info/br3n_v4/image ... shgirl.jpg

Gas Masks I agree. Angry kids love them.

Websites with too much text http://www.br3n.co.uk/

Stuck up arrogent designers - "Stop being different." http://www.rideurban.info/br3n_v4/graph ... trying.htm

Blogs, Yeh i used that like twice then realised they were as i had expected... Retarded

Pixel stretches, Kind of had to, that was the theme of the image. watch the video to common "go" and you'll understand

Websites with too much text, mine is incredibly to the point - Im talking about ones with HUGE amounts of text plus if i displayed all of my images in a line it would take weeks to load

read the quote on the graphic again, its pretty much what i said.. STOP trying to be different, Your all the same.

Happy?

I use pixel stretches, have a blog, try to be different, and dislike alot of text aswell. I'm not trying to start an arguement.

Haha. I suppose it's easy to say what you are fed up with, but I agree with the gas mask. That's about it.

I'm fed up with outline of a tree with splatter in the background. (except for yki's for the calendar).

That the calendar design was horrendously trendy. But you know how it goes. May have been the most emo piece I've done. At least I didn't put something like, "She loves me not..." on there. Because that would have topped it off.

Bascially your saying you hate when everyone does the same thing by using butterflies and gas masks but then you say stop trying to be different (also meaning, be the same). So I am kind of confused.

I understand your point to a certain degree, but to tell people not to try to be the best.

Maybe what you mean is 'don't think you are the best'. Like hvy soda does. :)

Add over-using the color pink on all designs.
