This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show my guest is Dave Dobson, the creator of Snood. in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, Dave sold millions of Snood registration codes one-by-one, collecting checks through the mail. The most impressive part? He did it all while studying and teaching geology.
In this episode we discuss how Snood came to be, how it’s different from Puzzle Bobble, and how it went viral before social media.
"American Royalty" by Sam Spratt commissioned by Childish Gambino
Sam Spratt’s commissioned illustrations for actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.
"What began as cover art for his mixtape ‘Royalty’ evolved into a series of Rockwell-esque vignettes on Americana meant to highlight the side of hip-hop that tends to take a back seat to “money, cars, and jewelry” – where you come from.
The collection of 10 illustrations cover a wide-spectrum of the little moments – the struggles, the simple pleasures, the risks, the irony, the humor, the hopes, and the realities of the American life that maybe isn’t quite so cookie cutter.” Prints available at royalty.samspratt.com.
