No Fun City

This is a poster I made for our Waterfront train station. A few of us were each given a nickname for Vancouver, I was given “No Fun City”. You can view it larger here.

    :) i just glimpsed at it briefly…thought, oh cool design. then I “read the story”. so good! While they are repeated, the cat’s eyes seem to change with the mouth expressions. I like it!

    Jeff, why would Vancouver have a theme of no fun? Maybe some people may think of Fort St John but Vancouver??? Great comic panel!

      i believe we originally got the reputation due to some laws regarding noise and it became an issue with music venues – we’ve done a good job of shedding this reputation so i kind of poked fun at it

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
