  • awesome.

  • RingingInMyHead

    These illustrations are so fun. The last one reminds me of Philip D. Eastman’s “Go, Dog, Go!” 😛

  • These have such a vintage feel to them… Jim Flora-esque. Very fun and a little subversive maybe?

  • Thumbs Up!

  • Cody

    this body of work as this dr. seuss vibe to it completely.

  • It’s like a Playboy illustrator joined a biker gang!

  • Jeans

    Dr. Suess+ Neck face = Jay Howell

  • Jay Rules

    I love his work

  • Savannah

    RingingInMyHead: YES that is exactly what i was thinking. it’s a grown up version of my favorite kid’s book.

  • I was going to say Dr. Suess, but the more I look at the illustrations the more I feel that I’m correct. Definitely playful, silly, and fun! -tys

  • RingingInMyHead

    Savannah: It was one of my favorites, too. I always loved the “Do you like my hat?” part, haha.

    Maybe in this grown up version, the dogs have to pay car insurance. :]

  • I love his work!
    specially the motorcycled nude series =)

  • Jay Howell = Awesome.

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.
