Fantastic illustrations and paperwork by Jean Jullien. Just look at this first image – by my count there’s roughly 100,000 cool ideas in there.

      i know mcfetridge does alot of continuous line drawings.. there is a little similarity.. in what way do you mean

  • Mr Hughes

    Yeh, very similar to McFetridges work. Which I love. But still the ideas behind the illustrations are (hopefully) genuinely his, which is the main thing. I really like them :)

    ditto to the mcfetridge comment.

    the ideas do seem pretty unique, but some of them seem to be just different iterations of ideas that have been running around. specifically: the eyes, and the idea of an image writing/working on itself (aka mcfetridges self-erasing pencil, which is the most basic and condensed manifestation of that idea).

    p.s. i’m not making these comments as a way of saying his work sucks or anything, it’s still visually beautiful. just talking conceptually.

The Hateful Eight Roadshow


Director Quentin Tarantino and cinematographer Bob Richardson wanted their latest film, The Hateful Eight, to be the eleventh film ever to be shot in Ultra Panavision (as wide as widescreen gets) and with the help of the film company they were able to pull it off.

The Hateful Eight will be projected in 70mm in select theatres on Christmas day as a good old fashioned roadshow, meaning it will feature an overture, intermission, playbill, and extra footage!

Watch the featurette below and start the countdown.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!

This Pop-Up Book Folds into a Functioning Camera!


After numerous prototypes, Kelli Anderson perfected a sequence of cuts and folds that could turn an ordinary piece of paper into a fully functional camera. The Book is a Camera is the ultimate pop-up experience: a book that not only explains how cameras work but actually becomes one!

The coolest part is you can support Kelli and purchase the book here but she specifically designed her pinhole camera under a Creative Commons share-alike license so you can also download the template yourself, build it, examine it, and use the knowledge to even make your own variant!

Kelli and I both spoke at Blend here in Vancouver and her talk was one of my favourites. She spoke about a wide variety of her past work including her counterfeit New York Times newspaper (she produced hundreds of thousands of copies and distributed it on the streets of New York), her amazing stop-motion tribute to the Eameses’ iconic film “Power of Ten” using images sourced from Google Images, and her paper record player/wedding invitations.

She’s the kinda person it’s almost hard to write about because she’s doing so many wildly different things. She’s currently working on a music video so stayed tuned for that!

More images and a video of her book/camera below!
