  • very very cool. a lot of confidence in the lines; some of the colouring is almost brave in the way that it could potentially have destroyed these. very cool!`

  • damn
    this is sick.
    makes me want to go back to drawing more.

  • Jake Alexander

    Congrats Fumi!! The drawings are awesome, I like the first one the most I think, the waves are amazing!

  • Really nice style

  • sr

    awesome stuff!

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I LOVE the skulls. This work is so beautiful. The use of negative space is what gets me the most, I keep looking at it again and again.

  • Cohen

    i’ve never commented here or anything (i’ve only browsed), so i’m not sure how this to ask and sound polite, but i just wanted to let you know that i’m seriously considering getting a tattoo of the first image with the waves, and i was wondering if there was a larger image (the sides seem to be cut off of this one) that i might be able to get a jpeg of?

    my email is seniorawesomeman@yahoo.com

  • you should email Fumi directly, i dont want to post her email here publicly but you can find it easily on her website.

    cheers

    oh, i was more planning on having her contact me than publicly put her email up, because i’m far too stupid to find her website… can you link me perhaps?

  • Cohen

    Nevermind, I got it. Thanks for telling me how to get a hold of her.

  • I too was thinking this would make a nice tattoo haha
    =]

  • zo

    Beautiful,
    but uncomfortably similar to Audrey Kawasaki’s work perhaps.

  • ^weird i dont see the connection other than the Japanese names.

  • zo

    Well the composition of the pieces really,
    and details other than their facial features,
    it’s no criticism i could just see that perhaps she’s inspired by her work..or vice versa?

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I looked up that audrey person’s work hoping to see this “uncomfortable” similarity. I see no similarity at all, the audrey girl other than having a Japanese name has a completely different hyper commercial style a’la someone like Trevor Brown, this work is in a completely different universe. It speaks volumes, I can’t wait to see Fumi’s work up close with my own eyes.

  • zo

    Everyone views art differently I suppose;
    sorry if i offended you, uncomfortably was poor wording on my part,
    just making an observation and as I stated before, the work is beautiful.

  • yea i wasn’t offended it just seemed like a stretch, there are many illustrators whose work is similar to kawasaki’s, Stella Im Hultberg for instance

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.
