    wonder how long it took him to create these wonderful illustrations.

  • Love this, the multi layers kinda reminds me of a more modern ‘akbar rejoicing at the birth of his second son’ (catchy title no?) which i had the pleasure of seeing at the V&A a while back – pretty sure the artist was unknown…. don’t suppose San Poggio has been plying his trade for 500 years or so?! Great website you got here! check out our blog if you fancy! http://www.newnotnew.blogspot.com x

  • oh my goodness, these are all incredible!

  • These are really cool, they slightly remind me of Where’s Waldo, especially the second and fourth.

    • Louise

      Exactly what I was thinking! Though over here the fellas called Wally 😉
      Anyways, these are fantastic and do bring a smile to my face. I wonder what inspired San to paint these scenes.

    • Steven Duncan

      yup. soooo true. I like em

  • Thanks for your website. It is so good to discover artists from a new generation, a new way to think art, specially.

  • GaRRRRRRRRRg!

    Fuckin amazing!

  • felo

    holy shit

    • you got that right

  • woooaaah! great!

  • These are really incredible. I don’t know that there will be enough justice

  • those ARE incredible

  • San Poggio!!!

  • This painting is pretty damn awesome.

  • c_p

    they remind me of some old video games, and as if they had evolved on their own in absence of a player…

  • max

    oh my god … unbelievable!

  • This is amazing! This also remind me a Filipino cartoonist named Larry Alcala who made “Slice of Life” you can check his work by searching google images. Too bad his website is down now.

  • The detail of these paintings is incredible. I imagine them to be quite large in real life. I’d love to have the time to inspect them properly as there is so much to see in every area of the paintings. I like the consistency of style and theme, although each painting tells a different story, they are all connected. I don’t quite understand them yet but then I kind of feel like you are meant to make up your own story. They almost feel like they’re illusions or a strange kind of Where’s Wally

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.
