  • RON’ALD

    While I find this work very astonishing and inspirational I fail to see how they are prints and not mixed media on paper. Am I missing something?

    • Alt

      They’re multiple plate prints. Different textures are achieved by aquatint, sugar lift, burnishing, sand blasting, and all sorts of different techniques.

      • RON’ALD

        I see. I guess I was confused by the picture of the studio. That, and they all appear to be bleed prints. I wonder how many make it to an edition. Or, if there is an edition at all. Very interesting use of techniques indeed!

      • PandoraPress

        Actually, all the photos above are her paintings with casein or her mixed media pieces. So – you were right, Ron’ald. Hibiki does do multiple plate prints, but these ones aren’t it. All very beautiful though. Go to her gallery website (Augen Gallery) to see the prints.

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.
