    I don’t know why this reminds me of all the illustrations that distracted me in my history books. Somehow they were relevant to the material but really who wants to read history when you can just look at pictures.

    Yea I’m a big fan of Kent Williams. He comes form a long list of painters and illustrators that we’re taught under Barron Storey. If you like Kent you should also look up George Pratt, Jon J Muth, Bill Sienkiewicz and Dave Mckean. I remeber going to pratt studying drawing, and the professors would tell me Kent Williams and George Pratt went to Pratt. I was delighted to hear the news haha.

Music Video: “Hamidasumo!” (Heaven & Hell Remix)


There’s nothing that could be said to prepare you for this bizarre video for the Heaven & Hell remix of You’ll Melt More!’s “Hamidasumo!” you’ll just have to watch it below! The song is excruciating though so you can let me know in the comments how far into it you got before you had to mute it.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!
