Pow Wow Hawaii 2012

pow wow hawaii
In a couple weeks I’ll be back on Oahu for Pow Wow Hawaii (aka the best event ever). This year’s event is gonna be different in a lot of ways, and by different I mean HUGE. For starters, the artist roster has tripled in size! Most of last year’s crew is returning and new faces include Kid Zoom, Mr Jago, Flying Fortress, Rone, Slick, Peap Tarr, Poesia, Angry Woebots, I think you get the idea. It’s gonna be nuts!

So how are we all gonna be able to paint inside Loft in Space this year? We’re not! We’re gonna be painting all over the streets of Kaka’ako! So if you happen to live out there please come out and say hi! Loft in Space will host the opening at the end of the week, and there will be photo show curated by my friend Eugene (of Hypebeast). Oh, and Arkitip will have a pop-up shop!

 

POW WOW HAWAI’I 2012

Feb 13th – 17th

Opening: Feb 18th 6pm to 10pm

831 Queen Street Honolulu, HI 96813

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.
