  • wow i actually took a picture a lot like the mattress one once.

    the colours in the 2nd last photo are so subtly beautiful.

  • TJ is an amazing photographer. Be inspired by this dude.

  • Robert B Cooper

    Minnesota! I love 1, 4, 6, and 7. But the first photo is my favorite.

    I was looking at these pictures and I was thinking “this has to be Minnesota. The way the houses are built in the middle of nowhere and the snow gave it away.”


  • very cool work on light, the ATM one is great

  • Wayne Proechel

    I was born in Minnesota and have many relatives still there. I think we might be related some how. Let me know if you would be interested in contacting a relative.

    • Tj Proechel

      I’m sure we are, we’re a small clan. Where was your family what part of Minnesota was you family originally from. My Proechel roots are from Janesville, MN.

  • ^haha i love that the site might potentially link up distant relatives

  • Love the ATM one… LOOK AT THOSE SHADOWS!!!

  • Extremely nice things!

  • rin

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”


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


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.
