    I remember finding Glenn Brown on the internet in High School and that first painting was the one that I’ll never forget hah. Man’s style is incredible.

  • Untitled

    Why would you post him – He’s famous, he doesnt need the exposure –

  • pamela

    The third one made me really stop and stare. Excellent!

  • emilyrugburn

  • Jasper

    The first picture reminds me of the end of Evil Dead

  • Emily

    I just realized today that the skeleton one is based off of Van Gogh’s skeleton painting with the cigarette. at least it was in a van gogh book…are the others like that as well?

    The skeleton painting looks like Van Gogh’s ‘Skull with Cigarette’.

    These are seriously ‘awesome’ works of art! Truly remarkable!

  • MarlenePB

    These are absoloutely magnificently Done. The off colors make the mysteriousness double As attractive.

  • These are very haunting.

  • Jake Dumas

    Crazy Paintning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jon D

    Glenn Brown is a thieving bastard, who steals other peoples artwork, changes a few colours, and then sells it for large sums of cash, to gullible fuckwits! He is a scumbag, and everyone in the real-world knows it! Do NOT buy Glenn Brown paiintings. Do NOT support this artist. Do NOT post his work in any gallery, museum, or other venue, and allow people to pay to see his (so-called) work! Don’t believe me? Just read this, for proof!

  • wow didn’t realise there was a history here – thats so strange, thanks for the link

  • warry_van_der_leen

    Yeah, Jon. Boldly spoken. Let’s kill Andy Warhol too…unless the D in your name stands for Dillinger. In that case I withdraw my comment. It would, however, fully explain yours…

    • Jon D

      Oh stop acting like your shoe-size, and start acting a little more like
      your alleged IQ. That way, i might decide to start taking your comment
      as one coming from somone with a developed brain! FYI, Andy Warhol’s
      dead, so your childish comment is valueless. He didn’t plagiarise
      people’s work, he actually modified existing images, as a comment on
      consumerist society. Glenn Brown clearly and blatantly does plagiarise
      other people’s work. If you’re too stupid to see that, then there really
      is no hope for you!

  • David James Wendel

    jon d there is no art without borrowing from the past, taking what someone has done and making it your own is/ or putting your flair on it is what many teachers suggest to there students now of days. Glen found his niche in tweaking others works into striking images of his own delight. deal with 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.
