A Growing Challenge for Germans Who Live by Bread Alone - NYTimes.com
Bakers in Germany are showing their work, and letting customers see their process (“something not normally done at traditional German bakeries”):
The idea was not only to attract customers, but also to send a message to anyone who might be tempted to pick up their Sunday rolls at the local supermarket, which have made the traditional German bakery an endangered species.
“I wanted them to see for themselves, up close, what we do,” said Mr. Trefzger, 58, as he sat in the cafe attached to the bakery that he took over from his father in 1989. “It is important that people learn to appreciate the traditional craft of baking bread.”
THE 1000 TEES PROJECT by SEIBEI
To show his process, t-shirt designer and illustrator David Murray is posting the next 1000 t-shirt ideas he sketches.
Most of them will be really bad, but that’s the point. My brain is a supercollider of bullshit. I’ve read so many comics, watched so much TV, and made and heard so many bad jokes, that in order to pull out the kernel of one good, original idea, I’ve got to pull out a lot of bad ones to uncover it.
As I start to pull out ideas I like or ones worth saving, or ones you like, I’ll take another stab at them, and reblog them with the original and the revision, to show my process.
Each sketch is very quick and will be presented with minimal commentary, and really is just a way for me to get ideas out and in front of me so I can mold them into something better (though every so often I have struck gold with a first sketch).
