  • Nat

    these are too awesome.

  • Amazing. So expressive.


  • MATT


  • 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.

  • yea Sienkiewicz is a personal fav, i was actually going to scan in pages from my Elektra Assassins for a post on him

    • Yea I’m Sienkiewicz successor, Ill show you some panels. HAHHA

  • zanez

    like 3. ,but somehow don’t like all together. something 4 me there feels bad ..

  • Anna

    fantastic, reminds me of Egon Schiele.

  • I’ve always enjoyed looking at Kent’s paintings. So much going on. It would be really cool to watch him paint.

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.
