Hooters updates its logo, girls still look hot
Hooters started rolling out their new leaner and more focused owl to replace their iconic decades old rustic bird. The iconic boob eyes are still there just as the orange-brown color combo. The girls are still hot so as their 911 buffalo wings and that's all it matters. Check out the various new, old and thematic implementations of the logo below. "We wanted to give 'Hootie' a facelift along with the stores," says Henninger, chief marketing officer of Hooters. Three decades ago, when the fledgling Hooters had no logo, the company traced the owl's image from the pages of a dictionary, he says. According to USA Today executives aren't making this change lightly. Hooters did online research with 300 consumers to comment on a handful of different owl designs created by the Atlanta design firm Sky Design. In consumer polling, the new design was preferred roughly 9 to 1 over the old design.

Artfarm's pig tattoos
Wim Delvoye (born 1965 in Wervik, West Flanders) is a Belgian neo-conceptual artist known for his inventive and often shocking projects. Much of his work is focused on the body. He repeatedly links the attractive with the repulsive, creating work that holds within it inherent contradictions- one does not know whether to stare, be seduced, or to look away. As Robert Enright wrote in Border Crossings, "Delvoye is involved in a way of making art that reorients our understanding of how beauty can be created." Wim Delvoye has an eclectic oeuvre, exposing his interest in a range of themes, from bodily function, to the Catholic Church, and numerous subjects in between. He lives and works in Belgium, but recently moved to China after a court of law judged his pig tattoo art projects illegal. Check out images from his Artfarm.

Lolli POP logos by Massimo Gammacurta
Lolli-pop is the latest conceptual still life project by Italian born photographer Massimo Gammacurta. His lollies are edible icons of Apple, Coco Chanel, Nike, Disney, Air Jordan and others. He handcrafted each one with real hard ball candy. The brands are as sweet as candy for the palate and the eye. The brand association has in fact been replaced by a new meaning through the materiality and the abstract action painting dynamic gestures. When Massimo first distributed his lolli-pops on the Internet as an art experiment, interest amongst bloggers and fashionistas exploded. With this book, his lolli-pops of world renowned brands are released into the world once again for consumption, but now in print.
