Dave Kinsey

I have been a fan of Dave Kinsey for a long time and was excited to see new work added his portfolio that featured some significant changes in his style. Excited to see where this evolution goes. This first one instantly reminded me of that Rene Almanza piece I stuck on the site awhile ago – also featured a dog and was similar in color.

  • Horse one is bananas! I still enjoy his old stuff too.

  • yea i just like it when you can tell an artist is still exploring

  • I just had a conversation about this topic with a buddy of mine. He was sending me some links of artists he likes and I was pointing out the ones that really worked for me. Almost all of them were artists that repeat their subject matter over and over. But they vary and twist it a little bit each time. Whether it’s a new way to render it or just adding a new type of detail.
    I think Kinsey is kind of doing the opposite of that… he’s taking his rendering style and approaching new subject matter. Either way the results are amazing.

  • yea definitely

  • MAN this is RAD.

  • Yea the horse one stands out cuz of the change in color scheme. Gotta love the black and orange palletes too!

  • Sean

    Dave Kinsey is one of my all time favorite artists. His style was very recognizable for a little bit but now it seems like he is going in a more abstract, dramatic approach. Either way, is work is very inspiring..

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.
