  • Haunting…I am scared of my own country, haha.

      I looked on his site because I was like “they look kind of like the pacific northwest…” and it turns out most of these were taken in the midwest! but that’s sort of the beauty they all feel so familiar, its very much Any Town, USA!

      • Actually, the ones selected here are either in Minnesota, Chicago, or Connecticut. Although many photographs on my website are from upstate new york…

    • stalker

  • wow

  • great set, but that first one is outtaathisworrrlddd!

  • the 2nd from the top is amazing.

  • I spontaniously shouted “heeeeeere’s Johnny” when I saw the second photo

  • Don Corleone

    I agree with Garrett Perry. The second from the top is amazing.

  • Greg Fatbert

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.
