  • These are really great. It’s interesting how the artist seemed to find beauty in world disasters.

  • Corina

    stunning. really thought provoking and beautiful.

  • Kiera

    beautiful. i love the second last one 😀

  • emily

    in the fourth one there appear to be the rods (and strings) used to control marionette puppets which would make the clouds ‘manipulators’ and those effected by them their puppets.
    but i think i am just reading too deep into this painting, which, incidentally, is beautiful

  • Hmm.

    incredible..the veins? vines? roots? whatever they are..amazing.

  • Impeccable fusion of kinetic imagination that has transformed realism with surrealism of imagination. Erin brings a depth of her medical development to her paintings that enriches the color of imagination of the birthing of a cell, rejuevination of inside the body’s phenominom unseen with the naked eye. Her compelling style seems to reflect her medical studies that penetrates even her paintings of birth explosion of magnificent color and illusion of what could be apart of medical research explaining to people who see her works, children learning in class a vision of what the scientific world tries to bring forth for the eye.

    Her works are to me kinetic, fused from experience and mingles with the optical illusion of the arts that reflect three dimensional imagination.

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.
