James Paterson

I said in the previous post Evgeny Kiselev’s illustrations reminded me of James Paterson’s work (which I hadn’t looked at for some time) but I just realised the work on his site right now isn’t really the work I was referring to. This video is more representative of the work that immediately jumped to mind when I first looked at Kiselev’s stuff.

Paterson really became known for his brain hemorrhage inducing flash animations which were often set to the amazing music of K-rad.

He went on to re-design all the covers for Buck65’s albums and I remember his animation for Buck65’s “Pope” was particularly awesome. You can view it here:

    That’s super rad! Not normally into abstract video work but I love his illustration style and the shapes he uses.

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

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.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
