    This was the dude that did the 6-year video, which overshadowed a lot of his other work, which is more amazing than the video.

      oh yes! I JUST watched that for the first time the other day after seeing the Simpson parody of it! I kind of loved the video! But you’re right these are amazing (love the girl at the beach)

    dudes got skills. And a sick sense of finding cool stuff, like that tree covered in snow and ice.

    HAPPY 4th of July = says the first photo.

    I love how each image has a bold focal point and some of which aren’t easy to find in every day life such as the shining object in the field and that incredible snow covered tree – it almost looks like a mushroom cloud at first glance. I think the second image of the plant is my favourite simply for the greens against the blue sky, it really stands out and the plant in itself is really interesting.

    First I thought these photos were paintings due to the amazing colours. Very nice motives!

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

Artist Spotlight: Cleon Peterson


The violent, mesmerizing, and brutally honest work of artist Cleon Peterson. In some paintings demon-like characters are attacking people, in other paintings similar actions are being carried out by uniformed figures. What is perhaps most disturbing is the realisation that we are drawn to such darkness; titillating news headlines, and bloody movies. The violence is inside of us all. More images below.

Artist Spotlight: Michael Dandley


Striking and thoughtful series of gouache and ink works by Newmarket, New Hampshire-based artist Michael Dandley. “Side Effects” is concerned with the disturbing and ultimately incompatible ways lands and oceans are changed to accommodate our modern conveniences. More images below!
