  • These remind me of Gustav Klimt

    • Alex

      did you know Amano was inspired by Gustav Klimt… that is why is are is similar.

  • Eli

    Yeah, reminders of a lot of things, yet totally original. The last one is stunning…

  • I love how ethereal his artwork can be.

  • One of my personal favourites, Amano proves that video game concept art is not just doodles (as one of my drawing instructors at my previous university insisted).

  • Shea Kennedy

    I loved his work since the first day I layed eyes on it when I purchased FF. Since then he’s been my #1 favorite artist of all time. I’m so proud that he’s been posted here. His art style is known worldwide bringing us all back to our days of Nintendo and Final Fantasy.

  • Steve

    The awesome thing is that Amano directed a film…with his trademark style. It’s so gorgeous to look at:


  • Niko

    Yes! I too can recall of the days of Final Fantasy 3, happy times, and just as memorizing artwork

  • so

    i was just looking at his artbook at a local vintage bookstore. cool stuff 🙂

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.
