Vasco Mourao

That sound that you are hearing outside your window is the sound of all your neighbors’ heads simultaneously exploding because they arrived at this page a few minutes before you did, and they have already clicked the “more” button. Be careful, I suggest scrolling slowly when you get to the next page. These illustrations by Vasco Mourao incredible. The subject matter reminds me of Howl’s Moving Castle and I would love love love to see this work animated.

    if you haven’t seen it already this is the original Miyazaki test for Nemo. why oh why didn’t they go with his version?

  • cuz as much as i love pixar/disney animated movies, they like to rely on the same ol’ formula. you know the kind.

    i still <3 the incredibles though.

    i also love the iron giant. oh and you should check out titan a.e. my mom worked on it 🙂

  • yea i still haven’t seen iron giant, ive heard from multiple people its the best animated movie ever made.

    oh that’s right your mom is in animation now i remember reading that on your site – that’s cool to have parents also involved in art

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.
