File Magazine / Issue #1

File Magazine is without question the coolest publication to show up on my doorstep thus far. I love large-format mags and this bi-annual publication outta the UK is roughly 12″ x 15.5″. The cover is a thick card stock and the inside pages are actually newsprint, but don’t come across cheap like you’d think. The page layouts are beautifully minimal – this thing is a real work of art. This first issue comes with a limited print by Geoff McFetridge and a DVD with over two hours of shorts films, music videos and interviews. In short, this magazine is legit!

    Interesting how you can see the printing on the other side of the page. Or is that the lighting causing that? Makes it look like newsprint, but it must be nicer than that, right?

    I think the newsprint pages compliments the sturdy cover. They have a certain quality when put together.

    Ahhh absoutely wicked. I would kill to go through all the ridiculously sick things you have gotten for free and I would also bet that you’ve made some pretty awesome purchases over the years as well. Cool coffee table books are always the best gifts and make for endless inspiration.

    Awesome. I didn’t realize that the format was so large until seeing it in context of you (not fat) arm :)

    I’m hoping to order a copy before they sell out.

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
