Wesley Burt

When I worked at Electronic Arts as a concept artist, I used to visit the forums on ConceptArt.org all the time. Wesley Burt had quite a following on there, for obvious reasons.

    The one of the guy with plugs and girl with mask is absolutely amazing.

  • Carley

    Hey guys what does the little heart in the post mean? I see numbers next to it?

    Great art right here.

    • its something we’re testing out – you’re able to say if you really like the post

  • Oh man Jeff you beat me to posting something about him! After I did that interview with N8 Van Dyke, I started to remember my early days as an artist always postin’ my shiz up on ConceptArt.org. He was one of my favorite artists back then, and still is. I just couldn’t remember his name, total space case. Oh well, great post anyways.

  • cheers Corey yea lots of fans of his on there for sure

  • Chris Z

    We both went to the same school, he’s a good guy and a crazy talented artist.

  • amazing talent, great draws & paintings! 😀

  • Wordless…

  • whatever happened to that guy? he had so much talent. i haven’t seen anything new from him in ages. it’s disappointing,

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.
