    THERE IS A FAULT IN REALITY

  • radhinal

    i watched this yesterday, i think the best part is the typo “REALITY” its not made by computer editing, it’s hand-made, that’s the clue for the message “FAULT”

  • Joel

    I love this! I saw it a couple months ago… no idea what it’s for (if anything other than art) but it’s so well done. The editing, the surrealism, the confusion… brilliant.

    Also I totally knew which cup it was in 🙂

  • mike

    typo? no typo.

  • Christina

    Typo? Also, I work as a magician’s assistant so I totally thought I knew what this video would be but I’m extremely pleasantly surprised. Chop cup is the term of a gaffed cup used in certain tricks.

    • whats it like to be a magician’s assistant?

  • Christina

    Well I’m also a student so it’s only a part time gig but it makes money. We do a lot more than we get credit for.

    • so you know the secrets!!! at what point do they start to trust you with that kind of stuff?

      • Christina

        Assistants probably do more than the actual magician. The magician is just the face of the trick most of the time, especially in stage magic. Close up requires a lot more skill and dexterity.

      • are you on stage in the flashy outfit

  • Christina

    haha I’ve only done that once. We do a lot of magic shows for kids and I TA a magic class as well.

    feel free to email me if you have more questions

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.
