DeadMau5 Essential Mix.

Not too long ago I featured a bunch of tracks from Toronto-based MSTRKRFT. Well it’s that time again, not for more MSTRKRFT but for more from Toronto. DEADMAU5! This is his 2-hour Essential mix! Pete Tong’s voice on the intros to these essential mixes always gets me pumped up. Throw this on while you work and you’ll be at home before you know it or throw this on over the weekend and you’ll be back to work before you know it. This is the type of music that makes me speed on the highway.

You can download it in mp3 from my new favourite site, Newmixes.com here.


You will spend hours at this site if you are into techno/electro dj sets.

    they have a HUGE archive of tunes, all of which are available for DL which I did, you should too. In fact, I believe there some pretty sweet DEADMAU5 rmx/mashups of a couple “INXS” and “House of Pain” tunes in there among a treasure chest of electro/bloghouse/hiphop goodies. Enjoy.

This Pop-Up Book Folds into a Functioning Camera!


After numerous prototypes, Kelli Anderson perfected a sequence of cuts and folds that could turn an ordinary piece of paper into a fully functional camera. The Book is a Camera is the ultimate pop-up experience: a book that not only explains how cameras work but actually becomes one!

The coolest part is you can support Kelli and purchase the book here but she specifically designed her pinhole camera under a Creative Commons share-alike license so you can also download the template yourself, build it, examine it, and use the knowledge to even make your own variant!

Kelli and I both spoke at Blend here in Vancouver and her talk was one of my favourites. She spoke about a wide variety of her past work including her counterfeit New York Times newspaper (she produced hundreds of thousands of copies and distributed it on the streets of New York), her amazing stop-motion tribute to the Eameses’ iconic film “Power of Ten” using images sourced from Google Images, and her paper record player/wedding invitations.

She’s the kinda person it’s almost hard to write about because she’s doing so many wildly different things. She’s currently working on a music video so stayed tuned for that!

More images and a video of her book/camera below!

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
