Project #4 – Instructions!

Alright boys and girls Project #4 is here – Design a skateboard for Booooooom! The good folks over at Popdeck made this one possible, so a big thank you to them. This is your chance to design a skateboard and have it sent to you! One month from now I will select the three most creative submissions and then we’ll have a vote. The winning submission will be made available on Popdeck, for the extremely low price of $35, and the winner will receive their own skateboard via mail – free of charge! Accepting submissions until October 25th.

The design can have as much or as little to do with Booooooom as you want but it must be original work! Just be creative!

Hit “more” for the link to the skateboard template files and the rest of the instructions.

Photoshop-literate people: Please use the templates provided in the zip below and submit a jpg using the skateboard_template.psd file (template will look like the skateboards pictured above).

Non-Photoshop-literate people: Scan your images (or import your photos) as large as possible and submit a smaller version of your work (less than 1 megabyte), like you have for all the previous projects, realising that I will have to take your artwork and implement it on the skateboard the best I can.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not submit your high resolution artwork! Hold onto it, and if you are selected as the winner, I will request the high res artwork from you at that point.

Here is the skateboard template:


Be sure to include your name, email, and website if you have one!

Have fun!

Submit your own entry!

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

skrillex-redlips-gta04skrillex-redlips-gta02 skrillex-redlips-gta03

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.

Amazing Collaborative Drawing Performance Between Human Artist and Robot Arm

Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.
