Are you tired of ads on websites blinking and flashing their consumerist message into your brain as you just try to find the actual information on the page? Add-Art is an awesome project from the folks at Eyebeam that might just be the best answer to online advertising that I’ve seen yet*.
“Add-Art is a free FireFox add-on which replaces advertising on websites with curated art images. The art shows are updated every two weeks and feature contemporary artists and curators.”
*Yep, IF runs ads. Wait, is this that irony I’ve been hearing so much about? Actually, we’ve got a good thing going with FM – they don’t make us run ads for products we don’t believe in, and they support some of our crazier ideas, like opening up our remnant ad space to all you folks a la Gawker Artists. If you want an extra place to share your work here at Illustration Friday, send a 160x600px banner with a link to your portfolio to email@example.com – we’ll accept 10 artists per month for display.
