Adam Katz: All of my good ideas are battles

January 26, 2011

For Stefan Sagmeister’s “Things I Have Learned in My Life” project designer Adam Katz spray painted 1,500 plas­tic army men and adhered them to a glass window to spell “All of my good ideas are battles” — a useful phrase to define the creative struggle. Very cool.

If you’re interested in army guys as a medium I would be remiss not to direct you to Dominic Wilcox’s War Bowls, or this impressive installation by Brett Yasko. (via design work life)
