  • subtly amazing.

  • I am a big fan of Jason’s work. Here is an interview I did with Jason a couple of years ago (http://wearduringorangealert.blogspot.com/2008/02/artist-of-week_20.html).

  • his paintings are pretty awesome. maybe this is a cynical interpretation but they remind me of someone on the verge of a complete emotional meltdown (esp. 1,3 & 5).

  • LOVE! the repition and pattern, and thoughtfulness of the colors. way to be complex while still keeping it intact and simple enough to have a bang!

  • DylanS

    I love these.

  • the motion in these is excellent.

    Jason come back to New York. We miss you!! I love where you have taken yourself since the days when we were in school. For me, it’s wonderful to see what you were doing back in the day and see it transform into this beautiful work. CONGRATS you deserve it.

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.
