International Drawing Project

International Drawing Project
Café Royal Books is launching their first International Drawing Project in February and it sounds really amazing!

Artists are invited to email drawings, and images will be selected, printed, and hung in the gallery. The gallery will begin as an empty space and slowly get filled up. Visitors will be able to select work from the walls to re-print on a photocopier in the space and bind the work into a catalogue before leaving the gallery. There will be talks and screenings related to drawing, and artists Mike Redmond and Faye Coral Johnson will also be using the gallery as their studio for the duration of the project.

They are currently accepting submissions! Get full details here.

  • This is so awesome! easy to get involved too, definitely submitting.

  • sciosis.

    awesome! definitely submitting.

  • Bill Roseberry

    Forgive me if I’ve overlooked one important detail; I don’t believe artists should be giving their work to the public for free and I see no mention in the invitation of either gratuity or of real compensation…??

    • thats interesting – i have a completely opposite reaction here. i dont see anything wrong with submitting work here without expecting to get money, however i would see a problem with it if they sold the zine – but they aren’t. i like the idea that you can enter the gallery and put together your own zine and leave with it.

      its just my opinion, many people like the idea of paying to get into a gallery to see work and i have never liked that idea.

      Bill,

      Are you the artist from whom my mother purchase a large painting called, I believe,
      The Divers? She purchased this from a Bill Roseberry who lived in Washington, D.C.
      at the time — 1970s and studied at The Corcoran.

  • I agree with jeff and im stoked on this!

  • I submitted and am pretty excited about this and I think this is a great way to get some attention as an artist who is only 17 and trying to find a styler of their own. so I completely agree with Jeff ! this is a great project in my opinion

    • good for you becca!

  • I am sorry, style, not styler haha

  • Oreka

    Lolz @becca “styler” srry for laughing, I find everything funny. Anyway I definitely agree w/ Jeff but I also understand where Bill is coming from. But I, as an artist think that this is an amazing opportunity for myself as well as other artists that are not yet established and are trying to get themselves “out there”. I’ll most certainly be submitting a handful of my art pieces. It’d be totally brill to carry a book w/ my artwork in it. Thanks Booooooom for lookin out haha(it’d be great if we were paid for this)

    • yea i think thats part of the point here! good for you

  • Oreka

    And also, this is going to be an awesome addition to my portfolio!!!! Yusss! *Napoleon Dynamite Voice• 😀

  • Awesome project, I’m in!
    Thanks for sharing Jeff, and keep up that amazing booooom stuff!
    Take care.

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.
