  • haha! I thought those people looked familiar! Gorgeous work

  • I’ve seen these before, the Heidi/Spencer one is awesome!

  • woow, awesome portraits! I like the one of Whitney the most :]

  • So I take it these are people in pop culture, just who exactly? I’m afraid I jumped off the TV train a few years back.

  • wow these are some pretty amazing portraits.

  • Dean

    HAHA JUSTIN BOBBY!
    but it is kinda sad when you think you know people off tv…

  • m

    these are hilarious

  • Omg that is Justin Bobby!

  • Rebecca

    impressive!
    it took me a second to realise where I knew them from…like I thought they were something significant 🙂 still, these are really good

  • Rachel Mychajluk

    Beautifully executed, especially considering they’re done in chalk pastel. I love the use of a mid tone with added lights and darks.

  • great find jeff!
    great work karin!

  • Pamela

    Wow these are so awesome! They look exactly like the characters from the show..amazing work!

  • its that feeling when you zone out completely and everything in your vision blurs except the image or person you are focused on.

  • kate

    haha this is the funniest thing I’ve seen.
    heidi don’t look like that no mo’

  • lapetitefaon

    OMG!!! I LOVE THESE!!! The Hills is my ultimate guilty pleasure and I don’t know why I’m so amused by these, but I am!

    • I love how you’re the only person to actually admit what show this is from. It seems like it really is a bit of a guilty pleasure. I’m not making fun or being mean or anything, I just thought it was kind of funny.

      • lapetitefaon

        ha, after reading through the comments, you’re right! No one mentioned the name of the show! I felt almost self-conscious typing “the hills” even on something anonymous as this!

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.
