    pretty. modest. i like the forest, and the folded lawn chairs on the roof.

    • yea i like the chairs on the roof and the first photo looks even better seen larger on her site

  • P

    made me smile.

  • Love all of these but the first one is particularly gorgeous

  • the picture with the chairs on the roof – amazing!

  • Ian McAllister

    I must say, this first image took me by quite a surprise. Why? Because that walking ramp is right outside my bedroom window. Here in Reno, NV we don’t have art. It’s more like aren’t than art. And as I curl up in my cube every morning and throw another blog on the fire, it is quite a rarity that the pretty pictures don’t come from culture catastrophe’s like NYC. Thank you Megan, I did not know my old school library, where the youngdumb once festered wild hormonal possibilities, had turned into such a depressing piece of shit.

    • i think that photo of the ramp is beautiful

  • emily

    you have to look for a while befor you notice all the little small things – ian you sound a wee bit like a complete philistine.

  • Laura

    It’s a photo of a RAMP. And a photo of a window a 6 year old could have taken, with minimal thought put into composition or even subject mattter. It’s photographers like this that make the art world a joke.

      It is what you make of it Laura, as is LIFE.

  • Kelci McIntosh

    Dear Laura,

    if you are going to criticize photography by plainly saying that anyone can compose that image is completely irrelanvent. i want to see your work and as a photographer i want to maturely discuss viewpoints rather than just give a negative critique cause in reality you aren’t showing anything better or bringing any new feedback to what could evolve her work or good points you see.

    dont be bitchy cause your jealous.

    Laura, instead of jumping to some rude conclusion and using the cliché phrase that child could’ve taken that photo, why don’t you make an educated critique as to why you don’t like the image. We’re all respected and respectful artists here (for the most part) and it’s out of context to give such a useless critigue. Take your sassy, unhelpful remarks elsewhere, it’s people like you we need less of in the “art world”.

  • Emily

    These have proved a pretty controversial set of photographs
    I know this is a cliché, but beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, so the way you interpret these is, in the end, up to you. But normally a photographer dose not create what they photograph but translates the mood and aesthetics of a place into an image, something that Megan Matthers has done very well. Even if you don’t like the subjects/scenery to which she has chosen to apply her talent, maybe you could see it as a dry comment about life… maybe… or something like that

  • Kelci McIntosh

    Emily,

    Beautifullyand perfectly said.

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.
