  • from what I understand Kaphar copies classic american and european works and then carefully cuts them up

      Wow, not only are his works brilliant pieces of art, they make intense political statements about the original art, and ‘history’ of the Colonial period. Super Stoked on these! WOW!

  • Brilliant. Just Brilliant!

  • sr

    wow… that first one is amazing!

  • lapetitefaon

    I love these! Completely changes the context of the works, especially the second to last is so brilliant, a formerly very serious painting and now the subject looks completely silly and forces the viewer to see it in a new light, brilliant idea!

  • dan

    are these on display anywhere?

  • i second SR. the first one is awesome. trips me out, cant stop staring at it.

  • i saw this exhibition at the seattle museum. they’re even more fantastic in person. his drawings with tar are really gripping.

    This work is absolutely amazing. I always think that the most successful art in terms of adoration, aspiration and inspiration are those artworks that make you think “why didn’t I think of that!”

    Definitely inspirational as a fashion design student!

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”


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


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.
