  • yeh nice.

  • I love how these replicate the feel of a grainy video, it makes everything more menacing.

  • Hoffman

    sweet fruit of Gerhard Richter syndrom

  • reegsta

    encaustic?

  • Rain

    Whoa. These are done so perfectly. The stripes of streaked paint look like a blurred photo but the stripes that aren’t look like nothing close to a photo.

    This reminds me of my work, or the work i WANT to produce. thats not a compliment enough, this is fucking amazing stuff. SO trippy, SO beautiful, SO perfect. Love this.

  • The blurry photos and stripes created a unique texture that make it more interesting more.

  • Richter paintings with a new twist.

    Eventually appropriation will no longer be a viable strategy once the all the artists doing appropriation are re-appropriated re-manipulated re-sampled freshly juxtaposed and interrogated. Let’s all stop stealing from one another and do something original since the lack of originality will become the new myth.

    Postmodernism is so stale.

  • Ruby

    These are great. I got the feeling of free frames from old VHS home videos. One could make the Richter connection but I’d hardly call this appropriation and I definitely wouldn’t call it postmodernism. Too much of a sense of beauty and nostalgia for that.

  • i can see the richter comparison but i’m sick of people yelling “RIPOFF” every time someone makes something similar to another artist. andy could have just as easily come to this idea on his own and thanks to the wonders of the internet richter is now not the only one known for this type of work. there are billions of people in the world. think about that before you try to drag someone down for “appropriating” something.

    that said–BEAUTIFUL WORK, ANDY.

  • These are fantastic. I love the effect/texture created.

  • incredible vhs paintings of my dreams.
    i love how your brain creates all the tiny details that don’t exist.

  • hmmmmmmm, first one looks strangely familiar http://www.flickr.com/photos/sprppl/2816985560/lightbox/

  • lapetitefaon

    like everyone else saw these and immediately thought of Richter buttttt not, these are insane! first is gorgeous

  • Jerrrrrry

    this guy steals other people’s photos and uses them WITHOUT PERMISSION — shoving them off as his own work

    • lapetitefaon

      This is actually horrific!!!! Ugh feel sick to my stomach seeing the original photos next to his work and to think he gave no credit and now is showing the pieces in galleries and published a book?! DISGUST

  • james

    Oh man, what a shame. Anyone know the deal whether permission was given to use for the painting or not?

    It’s still painted well, that’s for sure.

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.
