Jasper Wong

Illustrations by Jasper Wong. I hung out with him in Hawaii last month, and the guy is as humble as they come.

  • William

    This really reminds me of the work of a classmate of mine, however, I am really enjoying the color palette that seems constant in his work. Also, glad to hear about his being humble, just that character fact works so well to contrast the boisterous style of the works.

  • He’s really an exceptional dude, but just really really really smelly. Like fermented tofu smelly.

    • haha how you gonna stand living together?

  • That is awesome ! Makes me think a little of Japanese artist Postics http://www.postics.com/ and also http://www.suprbo.com/2009/08/pop-reportage-from-paris-plage/

  • Vim

    wow absolutly amazing, looks like alot of effort has gone into these illustrations, I’d think mr t would get angry if he seen the last image lol, a rainbow pouring out of his hood and ghosts popping out of his nipples. Reminds me of katamari damacy. Mental ideas, Jasper Wong have you ever thought of using these as t shirt designs?

  • Kyle

    Anyone that combines Mr.T and Rainbows is ok in my books.

  • Hot damn! Absolutely LOVE the work! Just posted a link on my site… -B

  • Flo

    So this is the dude that did all those crazy ass pieces for Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco! The posters are the one thing I look forward to on my way to work. Induct me into Jasper’s church of cool! Love it!

  • Chelsee

    almost looks like some parts of the works are in 3D.. wish I had a pair of 3D glasses to test that theory

  • Jill

    Jasper, MARRY ME!

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

im-dead-inside2

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

1-pattern-screenshot

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.
