Muto by Blu. This is an astonishing work of art. I have never seen anything like this. Street art turned into a stop-motion animation on public walls in Buenos Aires and in Baden (this apparently took several months – i don’t doubt it)! I am not just impressed by the “trick” of turning graffiti into an animation, the animation itself is engaging and quite beautiful to watch. I am stunned.

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.
