Waimea Bay

I thought I’d extend my summer a little bit and head to Hawaii for the week. My friend Jasper has been taking our crew around to a bunch of fun spots. You can only jump off this rock when the tide is high enough, so we waited until someone else went first (my feet still touched the bottom).

Be home soon.

    I love Waimea Bay. Greta beach when the surf is down. I totally wanted to jump off that rock with a bunch of kids that were doing it but my wife told me it wasn’t a good idea… Now I regret not jumping.

    I jumped off that rock with my brother when I went traveling a few years ago and I’d totally forgotten about it until I saw your pic. Thanks for the flashback.

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!
