    I really like the last one

  • toastrander

    really amazing

  • I’ve seen something similar on tv about a brazilian street artist who “cleaned” the walls (wich where dirty because of poullution caused by cars passing by) of a tunnel in a way that in the end there were hundreds of skulls drawn. When police came by and asked him what he was doing, he just said he was “cleaning”.
    Finally, autorithies decided to clean all the walls. Great ending 🙂

    Oh, and great work here. The second one looks like a giant ghost!

      i belive you’re talking about reverse graffiti. i’ve seen a project called ” The reverse graffiti project” in the Internet a while back and it looked amazing.
      However i don’t think Vhills’s work is related to reverse graffiti but honestly i’m not 100% sure.

      nevertheless i really like his work.

      é pena é ele não ser mais conhecido em Portugal :s

      • It was a segment called “Paredes que Hablan” (Talking Walls, or something like that) in I-Sat, a TV channel. It shows mostly latinamerican artist, I believe.

        And yes, I really like this too

    • lepetitefaon

      I think the artist you are thinking of is most likely Alexandre Orion who did the skulls inside of the subway tunnels in Brazil? http://www.informal.ro/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/AlexandreOrion.jpg ?

      I like both of their work and understand why one might make you think of the other, even though they are aesthetically very different and of course one is out in the open and the other is tucked away underground!

    This is stunning. I wish there were more images.

  • These are lovely – and interesting that people have mentioned Brazil, and specifically (in the case of Alexandre Orion) São Paulo.

    I took this pic – j.mp/qVmy0M – here in São Paulo a month ago, of the facade of the art gallery Galeria Vermelho. It seems so similar to these by Vhils – I need to check who the artist of the one I took is.

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.
