Brrrave Arrrt!

Brave Art opened on the weekend in Whistler and even though there was a big air contest on the same night, a ton of people still showed up for the show! (thanks sascha and steve for the camera work)

I showed a few canvases (two of which sold before I even got there!) and a snowboard from the 08/09 Endeavor line. Here’s my pal James aka sheOne telling me I did it all wrong.


Beautiful work.

More.

Even more.

Tim Barnard is everywhere!

Anthony (sub dvn), Endo (Devilock) showed up as well!

James killed it in front of a nice size crowd.

The outdoor setup was cool because they had these floodlights so all the vapors got lit up as he worked.

After the party is the hotel lobby…

Thanks to Nelson and Libby over at Monster Energy for squeezing us into the Adara (they booked the entire hotel) and BIG thanks Max (endeavor) for putting me in the show!

    Brave Art was a great time. Anyone who is interested in this kind of work should definitely check it out when it hits Vancouver.

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
