  • There’s definitely some Dalí influence here. The imagery is pretty cool to look at.

    • Giimo

      the first one.Dalí pure

  • Shea Kennedy

    Yes I wish I was the first one to say it but I totally agree it has a sort of Dali-esque to it. This work is a lot less abstract which gives it a nice story telling property. I love it!

  • SNOR

    i definitely had the right amount of dali in it. more wouldve been too much. skill is absolutely there. bravo. real impressive.

  • I’m sold.

  • Kevin Be

    Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, and Salvador Dalí had a baby.

  • Cristofer

    I also see some Bosch influence. These are great.

  • Zachary

    love the carried over themes (snakes, birds, fire, smoke.)

  • JAV

    Omega-rad. I see the Dali… Also kinda Bosch-ish…


    deeply esoteric

  • Lea

    I like the second one. It’s like an illustration for Hebbels poem “Winterlandschaft”.
    And the fifth … I really really like this style.

  • Loved his work this is the kinda art i love he thinks out of the box!Outstanding & clever!

  • Oliver

    Deinfitly a little Bosch here.. but it all looks very alchemical tarot to me. Great!

  • like it, cool work, looks like Dali and Bosco

  • its awesome to see fresh surrealism done supremely

  • Sean Wilson

    i was thinking bosch and dali and a little pieter brueghel, but i definitly see the durer….. love the work

  • Laste

    Reach for that monarch!

  • Dan

    Whoa! These are pretty amazing!

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.
