  • gosh, the feather and box of matches are fantastic!

  • Love the feather and the knife!

  • that switchblade is pretty sweet!

  • Bees and beeswax are the best. Such great vision to sculpt out of it. I like that you are using a less refined wax that still has a great amber cast to it.

    wow, such a pretty color, love the feather!

  • Incredible, from the smallest detail.

  • Oh, I like beeswax. The feather is excellent.

  • They probably smell so earthy! the matches are great

  • Rain

    Those first two are awesome. The texture on the switchblade handle is great. Seems like the ability to create that texture is one of the benefits of wax.

    I can’t believe no one has said it yet but “These are the bee’s knees!”

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.
