  • Hey Phil, this is truly impressive the atmosphere coming out of your photos! Love it.

    the 1st and 6th… wow. amazing creepy/haunting feel.

  • Driggers

    They look just like his music, I love it.

    THE PHIL ELVERUM from the likes of the Microphones and Mount Eerie? HE’S AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER TOO?! My god, some people are too talented!!! I love the one of the house, the sky behind it is perfect, and the first is lovely and reminds me very much of the Pacific Northwest. Or maybe its another Phil Elverum?

    • @lapetitefaon It’s totally Phil of The Microphones/Mount Eerie! Look at his website at the bottom!

      These photos totally reflect the same sentiments Phil puts into his music. The idea of being alone in this huge mountainous world, with all of our human ways creating a warm glow. I feel like I’ve seen some of these on his website before, but it’s always nice to see them again! He certainly has a knack for telling us something. As someone who has seen his live show a few times, you can tell there’s something sort of magical about the man. He’s certainly one of the great humble artists of our time.

  • Always am inspired by his art and music, love this work

  • nope same Phil. Love everything he touches. He released a huge book of photos a few years back.

  • Phil is a king.

  • what a bossss!

  • Rich

    I love everything about no.4.

  • Fourth one down, I’m guessing, is the source material for the cover of Lost Wisdom! So cool to see!

    Such an impressive artist. I caught his show in Cincinnati two months ago, and it was the best live show I’ve ever attended.

  • He has such a unified asthetic across mediums. Long ago I went hiking in the mountains in a blizzard with a bad head cold and kept trying to take Phil Elverum photos whilst Microphones songs about being obliterated by nature danced through my head.

  • I love mount eerie. Glob that man is amazing!

  • Shayna

    I met Phil at a Mount Eerie show a few years ago. He has the warmest personality. I love his music and his photographs and you can definitely tell that these are his. At least I did right off the bat! Amazing.

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.
