Dan McPharlin

I’ll continue with the Sci-Fi theme a bit – here’s some illustrations by Australian Dan McPharlin. I found out about McPharlin over on everyone’s favourite Sci-Fi blog: Sci-Fi-O-Rama.

  • Wow, I’ve never seen the work of Dan McPharlin, most excellent.

  • dope postings on the recents – i’m totally facinated with sci fi art

  • yea i’d never heard of him either. i get tired of alot of sci fi/fantasy stuff actually. there’s only so much Frazetta one needs to see but as you can tell by the main Booooooom header i am a fan of Syd Mead.

    so rad

  • Robin

    Just in case you are too young to know, the style is very similar to Roger Dean’s work. I’m sure that is entirely deliberate and meant as more of an homage than a rip off.
    Very nice stuff here. Thanks for sharing.

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.
