  • i love these because i hate cars

    • lapetitefaon

      Ahaha. Love them too! Mostly because I like how 2-5 are ridiculously cool looking paintings. Cars are kind of lame.

  • I once owned a jeep like the first one, I totaled it, and thats what it looked like….

  • it looks like a Geo Tracker

  • killer

  • Anthony

    you only showed his cars! those are his most boring ones, I love the ones of his son. the hamburger and skeletons are pretty cool too. he does paintings from canvases out onto walls as well. also semi-symmetrical diptychs. love the thick oil look, I based one of my works on his. it’s more difficult to pull off than it looks!
    nice to see an australian represented, we don’t have a lot of (good) famous artists, but we’re not that bad considering.

    Absolutely awesome. Shiny, loved and fussed over high tech speed machines transformed in an instant into immobile pieces of junk. So stationary, so undesirable. But the paint beautifully encapsulates the dynamics and energy of the last moment of existence as it were.

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.
