yip trip and the wonkus weskus whale

a huge whale washed up on muizenberg beach yesterday - exactly infront of where i live. what was incredible is the huge bites out its back from several monster great white sharks. another interesting observation for me - was whilst the whale was in the water it was very stretched out - however when it was beached the whale shrunk and became a huge rectangular block in shape - it was like triple the size vw kombi. the huge tongue and front end looked really strange out of water. it could have been a futuristic black bus - i had never seen such a strange once living shape before.

i decided this whale would have a better ending in the yip trip story of the wonkus weskus whale - yip living in grebnezium at least learns from each new visitor to the shoreline. this whale has interesting design lessons to teach yip and the folk of grebnezium.

yip trip design ideas

the concept of the yip trip children's story is that through collaborative innovative design, good  ideas are shared. grebnezium (muizenberg backwards)  gets incredible buildings, furniture  and improved systems. each new character that washes up on grebnezium beach from around the world , before heading home again will bring a very different design concept to the table - these design ideas will improve the landscape of grebnezium. to see the types of architectural and furniture ideas - look at the pictures. concepts like architectural musical interludes, shadow projected architecture, fingerprint city ideas, disintegration of perspective, perceived kinetic architecture and earth branded architecture. funky charlie chit chat chairs , creative art pods and much more.

all 16 yip trip covers and whacky characters

would you like to meet the design minds which help create young yip trip's design world - GREBNEZIUM,  design guru's like the man from wooloomooloo , the yingal yangal yak , the ding dang dingo, the minkus monkus , the mung chin bear, the knocked head lion and many more delightful design minded characters,  which work incredibly hard towards creating sustainable design ideals for the future.
book 1 - "yip trip and the incredible light machine" is somewhere further on in this blog, the rest of the design books 2 -16 are in a very secret design vault awaiting a time capsule release - to be only sent to children and adults who are serious about designing a better future for us all.

well much  better than the one that has been currently bish bash boshed out by design minds, these design minds  that should have done a better job. so its all up to you and yip trips buddies to actually do a better job than the fuddy duddys who have led us to this exact design point.
