  • Seems like these deal with the idea of the park. The top one reminds me of jumanji, which is a good thing. Also, for me, the small object in the foreground looks very real and challenges the reality of the rest of the painting. Beautiful!

  • Wow, I love the top piece! At first glance, I thought I was looking at a sculpture, then I realized it was a painting. It’s lovely! The colors and contrasting light and shadow and the amount of detail in the piece at the bottom is breath taking. Lovely work!

    Beauty in contemporary painting is hard to do.. these really pull you in to an isolated situation, a somewhat dreamy situation maybe

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.
