Want an Original Banksy? Steal it from Palestine.

The angst this brings us is precisely what we deserve for staying up too late surfing the internet.

YEMEN…. Nation of Wonders

We’ve had the pleasure of representing a number of Yemeni’s here at The Make Agency.  Though it’s high on our wishlist, we’ve regrettably never been able to visit and see Yemen for ourselves.  These photos remind us that despite all the struggles faced by this small nation, it is without question one of the most beautiful in the Middle East.

EyeWriter Projects featured in “Talk to Me” Exhbit at MOMA

This will surely be an amazing exhibit.  We’ve been lucky enough to cross paths with the folks at Free Art & Technology laboratory and Graffiti Research Labs before and they are some of the most innovative folks out there.  What they’ve done for TEMPT1 is beyond art, it’s true friendship.

PR Newser recently ran an Q&A with author Paul Temporal about how to reach the Islamic Market.

Interesting insight, though next time PR Newser, call The Make Agency.
