  • The attention to detail and space-age subject matter remind me of Rosenquist, even though these are b+w.

    • craig

      totally reminded me of robert longo. but i’m not sure if it reminded me of it in a good way. regardless nice hand skills . ..

      • tubby

        After a quick amount of research, (looking at the 2 artist sites) you can see the dates of the exhibitions where these works first appeared – Jonathan Zawada 2008, Robert Longo 2009. Blogs tend to take a little while to catch up on the latest works… If Longo’s were posted before Zawada’s, doesn’t mean his were first.

      • blame it on the collective unconcious

  • gorgeous work, I love how he mixes elements

  • makes me feel i need to practice more drawing!

  • Hey hey! Mario Galaxy FTW!

  • Lea

    M.C. Escher lost in space 🙂

    • ALEX IKHIDE

      LOVE this comment!!! sums up the work here perfectly ^^,

  • ben

    yeah, definitely a lot of great stuff going on here. A couple of these, however, aren’t given room to breath on their own, outside of the Longo comparison.

  • oceanchild

    i love the use of the helmet as a source of reflection. very cool.

  • cool stuff :]

  • Urrrica

    The last one just knocked my conceptual cock back in on itself. Nice!

  • Ben

    The picture that appeared to be a bunzi tree with the streak really fit the picture well

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.
